Default Attention steam fans in England (or any railfan in England)!

Spotted this sign in a client's house today, and when I asked where/how he acquired it, he said he bought from a closed pub "outside of Liverpool" several years ago. He didn't know any of the history of the sign as far as who painted it, nor when it was painted. I told him I'd do some research online using my "train connections" and let him know if I find any info.

The sign is fiberglass, roughly 60 x 90 centimeters, and has the same image on both sides. On top are two metal loops for hanging outside a building.


Have any of you guys across the pond heard of the "Railway Telegraph" pub? Any idea who could have done the artwork?
