These pair of double-sided porcelain street signs originally resided in the Rockaways in Queens, New York. Roackway Beach Blvd. and Beach 104th St. Produced and installed in the 1950s, they were unique to the borough of Queens until the following decade, when they were replaced by vinyl-aluminum signage. The color scheme was black on white, in which replaced the previous variation that was white on blue. When the first signs made from reflective signs came around in the 1960s, the new color scheme called for blue on white, and the previous signage was therefore short-lived, as they remained in service on Queens streets until the early-1970s.
