Old Virginia

I love the mills in Stockport - this sign is in Higher Hillgate. Virginia Mills is listed in the 1862 Official Catalogue of the Industrial Department (the directory of the International Exhibition) as a tobacco and cigar manufacturer.

Eye eye

Most signs can be improved by a pair of googly eyes, I think.

This sign on a beautiful drinking fountain in Lincoln's Inn Fields in London is urging you to push. The park was once the site of duelling, jousting and public execution. Now it's a pleasant place to wander round, play tennis, eat or, increasingly and sadly, sleep on a bench.
