Now and again we stumble
across something in our research where we think - "there must
be more out there" - sometimes more of what we have seen once
or sometimes things we assume must exist.
For example we assume there must be many more catalogues
and tiles than we have seen.
We have seen many advertisements
for Pilkington's tiles and pottery but there are probably many
more we have not seen. Sometimes we find references to old
tile schemes that may have been photographed locally and are
now "lost" to study. For example:-
Exchange, the Bristol
Exchange, the York City and County Bank Barnsley
, the Royal
Insurance Offices Barnsley
Beckett Street Leeds
a hospital we think?) , Dial House Leeds
and many others.
We have written about the tile panels that used to be located
but have only found 3 photographs of them "in situ".
If you have any old photographs or catalogues or just the
unusual please let us know at :
In the mean time does any one know about these ? They are
typical installations in Co-op stores c 1920 - are there
any local to you?
If you can send us details of the heights or an image that would
be very helpful.
