The history of signs

We’re launching a new series of articles on the history of signs and need your help.

Do you have photos of old signs that we could use in the articles? Ideally, we’d like a bit of information to go with the photo, such as the location, date, a ¬†description etc. As much detail as you’ve got. We’ll acknowledge every photo used, with a link back to your website (if applicable).

For more information, or to submit your photos for inclusion, please email me at
