      …and, rather unexpectedly, that looks Granby at bottom right. I’ve never really understood what was going on with Granby, it seems to crop up every now and then with no very obvious reason. I can only assume some printers and designers really liked it. You see it on the most random things – quite a few programmes for the '48 Olympics, for instance.

      (Speaking of which, this has brought my attention to Aviation Ancestry, which is a really cool archive of trade aviation advertisements indexed by year. It’s basically the most structured directory of trends in British trade printing I’ve seen.)
