I spent two weeks in Chile and could not avoid searching for my beloved 1930s items. Chile's capital Santiago has two big flea markets (Persa Bio-Bio and Persa Balmacedo) and some antique shops worth visiting. I found this nice 1930s arrow shaped one way sign and brought it back with me. It reads "Tránsito" meaning "Traffic" written in a beautiful art deco typeface and measures 27" x 11". The lines and letters are embossed. The third picture shows one of these signs at the corner of Alameda Street with Bandera Street in 1939, in Santiago, Chile. The last one shows it again as well as a double-arrow one, both at the right side of the picture.
