I know that Goddess Karen is the sign queen, but I saw so many interesting signs on my trip to England and Scotland that I just had to share.
This first one from Liverpool is quite practical, and especially appropriate since our trip was to celebrate Hubby’s 60th!
I know that this next one must have something to do with traffic, but obviously it lost something in the translation:
Actually, I need it in my office. My priorities change with the wind, and my family could use the warning!
I LOVE this next one, because you would never see it in the U.S.:
Clearly we need more castles! And traffic signs that will point them out to the oblivious who are wandering around the back roads of Nairn, Scotland, looking for said castles (ahem).
And finally, I had to laugh at this sign, which is actually for a product that goes back to the 19th century and stopped being sold in the ’80′s. I just love that York has kept the ad for it carefully preserved. It has a charm all its own.
I need some of those! Too bad they don’t make them anymore.
What signs have you encountered in another state or country that perplexed you or tickled you? What products have you seen in old advertisements that you’d never see these days?
