Picked this up for the old man. Hope he likes it when I stuff it through his door tomorrow.

Cheers.

great looking thing..i dont wanna bore anyone,buy theres an actual enamel sign of this..back in the early 70s my old man used to take me bottle digging "nasty dad",around the midlands and everywhere else..i remember we used to dig a tip in Bewldley in the midlands right next to the river every weekend and find odds and codds..the one day it pissed down of rain,so the digging was off,,instead we had a mooch around the back of some empty old houses by the river and this enamel was in between 2 old coal houses holding the lot up..it was about 6ft by 4ft but it was white black and red,but the same wording and pictures...sadly we didnt manage to get the sign as it wouldnt fit in the back of the vauxhall viva...2 weeks later we went back in my uncles van to find sadly it had gone along with nearly everythin else..but there you go..
