John and I have spent the week cutting and framing a destination scroll from a 1928 London Transit bus. In the 20s, London was recovering from WorldWar I. Cars and trucks were still considered a somewhat new form of transportation.
Today John hung the framed numbers in our little room at the antique mall. Regular readers will understand how difficult it was for me to part with these graphically wonderful pieces. We sold five others before we even had these hung. I am quite in love with these train, bus and subway signs. They have been showing up in decorating magazines with increasing regularity.
Last week we added these other British bus destination signs.
Below are a few views of our room at the Brothers' Antique Mall on Rte 3 in Medina OH.
I may be late to discover the blog In My House. I have really enjoyed looking at the flamboyant photos of this (maybe Danish?) blog. The blogger also likes the vinatge destination signs.
And other signs, too:
It is an absolutely glorious day here in Northeastern Ohio. I am going outside!
