Saved from the scrap yard. British WWII cast iron Police Station sign. This type of sign was affixed to he front of all Police stations until the 1980's when they began to be scrapped. I managed to save this one from the scrap yard, now quite rare!! This one from Cumberland and Westmorland, now called Cumbria Police.

    Thanks for the love and comment PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, yes I was pleased to get hold of this. It still has original paint on it so I am in two minds whether to leave it or re paint it!
  20. inky inky, 2 years ago
    Noooooooooo! dont re-paint..pleeeease live as original, it will lose all its character and authenticity !...my thoughts anyway!......:-)
  21. petey petey, 2 years ago
    Thanks inky, I hate the thought of removing any original paint on anything, of course you are right, will probably just try to find some way of cleaning gently without paint loss
  22. JueBoo, 2 years ago
    I totally agree Petey ...Far too much history just thrown away !!

    In fact, it is more valuable to save smth from a scrap yard. One surely must have an eye for such things. Respect!
