    this is a sign that was sold on ebay i guess it would be a red diamond sign.its a strange way to say stop. it must keep cruise night to a minimum.
    it said in the ad that it may be the first version of the red stop sign

      From the LA Dept of Transportation: "California is the only state in the nation to have always had red Stop signs. All other states have used yellow Stop signs.
      In 1924, the First National conference on Street and Highway safety recommended white on red for Stop signs. The Automobile Club of Southern California (ACSC) and the California State Automobile Association (CSAA) responded by developing a porcelain enamel "Boulevard Stop" sign with white letters on a red background using the established diamond shape." -- The other ones I see have "Erected by Order / Police Department" printed below the "STOP"
