    Nothing terribly special (nor old) by itself, this most recent little sign to join my herd will remain a favorite simply because it was a gift from a new friend, who after a sorta accidental chance to recently get a look at the rest of my (75-100 or so pcs., depending on how 'ya count 'em) 'sign collection' was intrigued/impressed enough that he thought it'd "fit better" here than in its previous lonely existence hanging on his fence all by itself. :-) :-) :-)

    Ain't it fun when one comes across another one who, one way or the other, also actually *appreciates* (and/or even *enjoys?!!) all the weird crap we otherwise "collect"...??? <LOL>

    It measures 12" x 18", made of rather thin gauge white painted aluminum with plastic lettering applied. It is not "highway standard grade" in any fashion, much more likely having been something originating from an industrial supply house of some sort for use by a 'private citizen/business' instead. No markings whatsoever to indicate who or when that might have been, nor where it served its previous duty.

      Thomas, there's lots similar around town here too, often at the entrances to apartment/condo complexes or 'gated communities'... <sigh>
