1950's City of Toronto Ellerbeck Street Sign

1950's City of Toronto Ellerbeck Street Sign


Here is a very cool piece of Toronto history. One of the early "Acorn" signs it is double sided and the letters are embossed. It is in used condition.

The casing that holds the two signs is quite corroded after a couple decades in the elements. That said it is still complete and solid, no breaks or cracks, but does not have its acorn nor a mounting bracket. It is quite straight but appears to have been painted over at some point in its life with the paint now worn off and the original paint showing through. See pics for condition.

The signs them selves are in good condition, No cracks or major scratches

Measures 30" x 13" x 2"
