Hand lettered vintage trucks.
During a trip to the Isle of Wight toward the end of August, I found myself wandering around a Steam Show at Havenstreet, the Island’s heritage steam railway. One of the attractions on offer was a collection of vintage vehicles, many of which were beautifully branded and decorated with hand painted lettering and logos.
I’ve included a few examples above, but the Hanley Amusements truck in particular caught my eye. Close scrutiny revealed the intricacy of the brush strokes that aren’t obvious from a distance, so I included a couple of extra photos of one of its panels. It really evokes that era of old-fashioned fairground rides carrying elaborate and brightly-coloured patterns and lettering.
