Arch 401 - Gill Sans with Ron Haselden

Gill Sans script isused to give each bridge its large scale number as assigned to it somewhere in the past history of its making. The numbers, which include 401, are inscribed in configurations of tiny electronic lights (LED's) up and under each bridge as a large illuminated number. The number is drawn as surface mounted lights and follows the curvature of the bridge brickwork. The illumination is readable at all times.
