A British manufacturer,  the Russell family had founded their beer brewing enterprise in the late 18th century in the town of Malton. By the late 19th century, they were operating multiple breweries in the area under the aegis of the Russell and Wrangham Company. They were eventually bought out in the 1950’s. This lithograph on tin sign was made in the UK by the Hancor Mitchum company in the early 20th century and has great graphics, which depict two working class men and are indicative of the cultural shift towards a more egalitarian society in Britain during the interwar years.
