March 2006: The barely visible painted sign contains lettering for 'HANSONS KIMBERLEY ALES'. The pub is dated 1929, and the building next to it which obscures the sign was built only a few years later.
This image from the early 1930s illustrates the sign on the southern gable, now completely obscured by newer buildings. The HANSONS fascia signs are long gone. Illustration taken with thanks from Leicester's Trams by Geoff Creese (Irwell Press)
