Gurn exclusive: "polling station signs are printed by a company set up by a Nairn ex-pat in 1750"

Thanks to Jane Falconer for the link:

"The UK’s main supplier of printed election paraphernalia is Shaw & Sons, established in the City of London in 1750 by Henry Shaw, a native of Nairn. The majority of the Polling Station signs you see today as you cast your vote at a local school, town hall or perhaps even the St Bride Foundation (we are a City of London Polling Station today) were almost certainly printed by the company at their works in Crayford, Kent."
