Lettered castings

Lettering can be found all around us, not least under our feet. Many people, after consulting this website,
have said to us: "I've started to look up at buildings". But don't forget to look down as well. This page summarises examples of cast metal signs on the Ipswich Historic Lettering website, directly linked to the relevant web-pages. Ipswich was an industrial town with many foundries producing cast metal products, some of which remain in our landscape.
