It's on the University campus. That's the edge of the Parkinson building that you can see to the right of the picture.

No idea what this might have said...

What a pity. There's loads of these badly faded ones. There's some really good examples hid behind the advertising boards already up. I wish they's rip the things off!!!

Could that sign above have said 'Pears'?

Lils Cafe

Have been looking on Leodis.net there is a picture of 11 Call Lane in 1991, at that time it was The Monti Carlo Coffee House. Above it can be seen the signs for LILS CAFE. The sign appears to be fresh it certainly is a bright white.

This is one of our fave old painted adverts, IMO it should be a city treasure and on postcards!

"Medically tested

BILE BEANS

The ideal tonic laxative"

How do you test a laxative!!!??? Shocked

And more adverts here.

There's a nice small sign on the Mill building (Winker Green Mills) just past Tesco on Armley Road/Stanningly Road, for 'The Fox Lace Co'. I'd grab a shot of it before it inevitably dissappears as part of the new development there.
