Bile Beans

A ‘Sign of the Times’ from yesteryear left on the side of a building in York. What I’d like to know is this: if Bile Beans are so good for you, why aren’t they available today?

Update: I’ve since found out this is an example of a Ghost Sign: a fascinating rabbit hole to fall into 😉

More about Bile Beans here – well worth a look!

    1. Fantastic links thank you!

      Just after I’d taken this photo, I went to a shop across the street which specialises in all kinds of nostalgic nick nacks. They were selling postcards of old adverts which included one for bile beans sporting a very glamorous lady as described in your first link 🙂
