The Friday Photo – Little Miss Barber
This weeks the Friday is another one of Birmingham’s fantastic old ghost advertising signs. This one was taken in Witton and features this little Miss Barber sign which was a popular character to advertise tea here in the West Midlands.

I drive past this every day and I think back to when it was first painted. There is another one like this painted a bit further down Aston church lane. Great photo.

I would love to know when it was painted if you knowing anything. Thanks for the tip about Church Lane will check that out? They are great aren’t they I wish we could get them all protected to save them.

My maternal uncle Joseph Skidmore was one of the painters of Little Mis Barber. He started painting them as far as I can remember, in the 1950’s. He was not the last person to paint her.
