Suffering for Beliefs

 
Up to London for an interesting piece of history this week. Re-lettering an incised plaque at the LSE remembering the WSPU Suffragettes.

Plaque marking the site of the HQ of the Suffragettes


I found an interesting picture recorded by a fellow lettering artist. It would be nice to think that Sylvia Pankhurst was swinging her brush in the same location all those years ago.
 

Sylvia Pankhurst Signwriting


 
I also found a picture of a brooch, House of Lords Portcullis, WSPU ribbon colours
 

Holloway Prison Brooch by Syvia Pankhurst 1909


 
WSPU Rosette
 

WSPU Rosette Votes for Women


This leads to even more fascinating pictures of artifacts, all of which have links to Suffrage and with remarkable period lettering.

Metropolitan Police Whistle 1904


WSPU Hunger Strike Medal


Ballot Box for Women


Census Resistance Badge of 1911


 
Wonderful fonts engraved and painted.
