Advertising card designed by Barribal and utilized by the well known Firkins Gloves firm who were situated in Foregate Street.

A speciality of Barribal was the theatre advertising card and,by chance, this one was actually used by the Worcester Theatre Royal in the early 1900s.
Barribal was an evening pupil at the Worcester School of Art (which produced the renowned Victorian artist B.W. Leader) while being an apprentice draughtsman by day. His wife, Babs, was the inspiration for the great majority of his work and he met her while he was at Worcester.
