The humble sign is an effective means of communication that's so much part of the landscape it's often ignored.
Signs are meant to be informative - but of course they're often also funny, artistic, archaic or downright misleading.
I'm flexible with my definition of a sign. The dictionary offers at least 10 definitions, the first being that a sign indicates or acts as a token of a fact not immediately observable.
This blog is a collection of signs that appeal to me, with a little of their history thrown in when I can find it. You'll find street signs, shop signs, ghost signs, chalked signs, building signs, old signs, art, graffiti, adverts and more. It reflects where I spend most of my time - Manchester, Stockport, London, Liverpool, Southampton. It's not about great photography - my photos tend to come out quite a bit worse than I'd like. Sorry about that.
Enjoy the signs.
