    Does anyone know what the 'H' is for?

    Re: Jamaica Street Leading to Grafton Street sign: The building this is on currently has a For Sale sign on it. It's one of the better warehouses around. There was another sign which went missing a couple of months ago. I thought these were two of the largest signs left.

    There's a nice one in Bootle at the junction of the Dock Road and one of the streets leading off it which proclaims "County Borough of Bootle" thereon,somewhere by the L20 boundary. I forget exactly where,but I liked it and it must be several decades old.

    I know of a modernish one with metropolitan borough on, which I haven't had chance to do yet. I'll check along dock road way, but a lot of the Bootle end streets have been closed off and incorporated into the dock estate and built over or had the signs removed.

    I posted this one in another thread in March 2007. It went missing a few months later. I've noticed lots of signs have vanished in the last couple of years.

    Great pics all

    I noticed last week just how many street signs Sefton Street has! I think we counted 5. But I am sure there are more.

    I believe some of my photos were magically disappearing and then appearing again the other day.
    Don't know what it was all about, but hope you can see them now.

    I noticed that this sign has the 21 as part of the original design, as also do some of the Bootle ones in this thread.
    All the Liverpool central and south signs had the postal district number painted on in red, on plates that obviously weren't designed for the addition.

    I've noticed a few that don't even have the number on as they didn't have the space and would be pre postal codes possibly.

    must admit I prefer the look of the old cast iron ones to the new style ones that look like they're made out of melted down coke cans .

    Default Wellington St , Garston

    This old sign looks like it was put up not by the Liverpool City Council but by the Garston Council prior to its 1902 incorporation into Liverpool. Doesn't look as if the sign's been painted since either !!

    That Caryl Grove is the first I've seen where the Postal Number is part of the original design (apart from L20 & L21).

    I like the background colour on this one.

    it really caught my eye. the one on the other side of the road was cleaner, but had much less character

    found some interesting ones today

    especially this with having the word late in between the 2 signs







    I know this one is modern, but it's one of the largest I've seen

    in the 80's when we used to take my grandparents home to Runcorn I remember a St Mary's Rd sign half sunk into the pavement near a church. Does anyone else remember it, or was I dreaming it?
