Palmers P

karmeliterkirche, ursprünglich hochgeladen von danielsp

This coincidental flickr find unites several personal meanings within one image. I have been researching early literacy and how children long before attending school are able to read (and appropriate) semiotic resources such as logos. The very first letter of the alphabet which I remember learning was the P, taught to me by my grandmother with the help of the “Palmers P” – Palmers being a well know chain of high street shops selling undergarments. The church shown is located close to where I live now. I wished I knew which saint is represented here, holding a golden branch, as I also spent years researching the “Tree of Life” in art and literature.
