Antique Street Name Signs

Street name signs have long been a way to tell travelers where they are, help people find addresses and organize our communities for the postal service. Street signs may come in a variety of shapes and materials. Some street name signs are located on the curb or sidewalk pavement, while the most common street name sign in the United States is a metal plate located atop metal posts. These may be plain or ornate.  Dickinson, however,  boasts some of the more rare street signs. These antiques of yesteryear may be found in some neighborhoods made of cement. There are however markers that designate gas lines such as HNG – Houston Natural Gas.
