203, Cavendish Road
With BICC Cables
Width 30.4cm (12″)

BICC refers to the company ‘British Insulated Callender’s Cables’ founded in 1945, becoming defunct in 2000.
The company, Dennis Hunter, no longer appears to exist and the address is now a housing estate. Mr Hunter was probably sponsored to use BICC cables.
Fixtures and fittings are not included.
Dating to about the 1950s, this wonderful company sign is single-sided. The photographs were taken outside and there are areas of dappled sunlight on the sign from the garden.
There are a few scuffs and white paint flecks on the sign, and some loss/dulling of paint/colour, but generally it’s in fairly good condition for a wall mounted sign that has hung in a salty and windy seaside town. The edges have some corrosion and loss of paint/colour but no splits or cracks.
I have given the sign a gentle wash with soapy water to remove the surface dirt but not attempted to try to lift the engrained dirt/paint flecks for risk of removing the colour.
A lovely sign for the collector, engineer or just to hang on your garage/house wall!
