    These street signs originally came from the Tompkinsville section of Staten Island in New York City. Dating possibly as far back as to the 1910s, the porcelain street signs are black on yellow. This color scheme was adopted by the NYCDOT when the first vinyl-aluminum street signs appeared on Staten Island around in the early 1960s.

    Today, on Staten Island, only two porcelain street signs remain in existence. I believe they are preserved for historical purposes, and they are located in Historic Richmond Town.
