Derrick Hall on Painted Wall Advertisements in Gloucester.

Derrick is a member of G.F.H.S and gave his presentation to a meeting at Gloucester earlier this year. It comprises a selection of photographs of painted wall advertisements to be, or were to be, found in Gloucester (and one or two other places) which Derrick has collected. He has very kindly agreed to come to Bream to show us the images. As he says it is not particularly family history but it is certainly the closely allied social history.
