I have been trawling through books looking at pictures of Grand Union boats trying to find out what is written under the G.U.C.C.Co.Ltd (kind of thing but with the td in line with the top of the L)
Back to my trawling, and I found a really good picture in a book, Canal Recollections, Julian Holland. 1998. Parkgate Books, page 32 and using a lens it reads (top line) HATTON&Co. (middle) MAKERS (bottom line) UXBRIDGE.
This picture is also in the George & Mary but rather under exposed so not able to read it. Page 19 (old copy)
Does anyone know of any other good images of pre war cloths on boats that can be read.
Another, interesting, thing is on one cloth it as Ltd. and on another it has Ltd without the stop. Just goes to show that at the time there were variations as to what and how information was written.
Does anyone know what type face (fount) it is and size.
