Welcome to Signs of our Time, Belfast; a project exploring the history of traditional signwriting, its historic applications, its recent resurgence and the techniques involved.
This website is [was] an active record of both historic and contemporary handwritten signage, through contributions to the archive and the work undertaken by the participants. Signs of our Time is initiated by PLACE, the Centre for Urban Built Environment in Northern Ireland, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and supported by Ulster University.
PLACE managed two social media accounts for the project, sadly now also inactive:
