    These are vintage porcelain "humpback" street signs that retired from Manhattan in New York. My first sign of this type, as shown on the left, I acquired several years. Recently, I found its twin. I cannot say for sure if these two were once together, since a minimum requirement of 4 signs were to be used at a New York City intersection in the old days. Though the recent find is great, since I now have a street corner with the right street names.
