p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Signs in your city or town


I am not sure how this will be received, but with the popularity of the Automotive thread and the Bridges of the World, why not try. I am hoping many fellow FM'rs will contribute any interesting signs located in and about your city, town or even rural areas. Here are a few to start with - Tom's restaurant made famous by Seinfeld is located in the upper westside of Manhattan.

Thank you for looking.

Heh I think it is great Charles!!!!
I love signs and take any opportunity to photograph unusual ones.
Now do you, or would you, consider a painted mural on a wall, building or other structure a sign?
I will start to post mine ASAP!

Lights, neon... Let's go back to the roots

Pellegrini e Viandanti by Massimo Foti, on Flickr

This in Lugano, Switzerland, close to the Swiss/Italian border. It's written in ancient Italian language, so ancient I would expect it to be a few hundreds years old, but it's just speculation on my side

Boy, I had better get started posting Charles!!!!
Your evening/nightime images have superb exposure! The neon really glows.

Massimo - any translation? My mother was full blooded Italian, I can read some but not this!

Great thread Charles!

The dentist promoting his office as a "house of joy" must be a real sadist. Great contribution, thanks !

Original text:

Qui si alogiano pellegrini e viandanti con provigione di letto lume e foco

Attempt at English translation:

Here we host pilgrims (we would never use the word "pilgrim" nowadays) and "viandanti" (I was unable to translate it, it's a very ancient word that means "travellers") with commission (again, modern Italian would use a different word here) of bed, light and fire

Even without updating the words, the spelling is pretty ancient too, current sppelling would be:

Qui si alloggiano pellegrini e viandanti con provvigione di letto, luce e fuoco

Thanks Massimo!
Well John Wayne used to use the word "pilgrim" in his cowboy movies so it can't be too ancient. At least by American standards!
Thanks again!

Pastor,
Excuse the lewd reference, but maybe it is what's in the waiting room" that makes the dentistry part JOY! Boy is that not an oxymoron!
Nice catch!

I don't have many signs, but I like this one on Gates Hill Rd. 16% grade up one side and 16% down the other. It can really smoke your brakes if you are not careful.
