This print was created by Tommy Perman for his solo exhibition with The Red Door Gallery, titled “Leith, in Red and Black”. The Tailor shop depicted here feels closed for business, though the windows are still protected by defensive grills. In this context, the signage takes on a new meaning, instead of advertising the productivity of the proprietors, it instead reads as the building itself asking to be repaired, altered and tailored to suit purpose.
