SK3963 : John Bull Tyres

taken 12 years ago, near to Clay Cross, Derbyshire, England

John Bull Tyres
John Bull Tyres
Old advertisement for John Bull & Trisun tyres which were available from Kennings tyre and exhaust centre. This painted bill-board was prominently displayed up until the early 1980's when it was overpainted with black paint. During the last few years, the paint has been removed to show the advert underneath. Alan Heardmans picture from 2009:- SK3963 : A61 Derby Road - Entering Clay Cross shows slightly more black paint, so maybe weathering is giving a helping hand.
