Friday My Town Shoot-out – Signs


This weeks My Town Shoot-out subject was chosen by Si.



In a Penrith printing shop.


At Becky Falls in Devon.


In Derbyshire – like we need warning about these things on a country walk? The Health and Safety Executive think so.


All around the country our best signs are Inn Signs. This one is in Birkenhead, Wirral, Cheshire.




Signs for sale in Birkenhead market.

  5. Like the song 'Signs, signs, everywhere signs' - I always like the one that is found in our parks "Thieves operate here".
    I enjoyed the housewife's instructions and may send them off to a couple of members of the younger generation - I hope they can take a joke.
