Lon­don street signs lined with gold?

RE­VIEW: Mo­tor­ing Sec­tion, Great West­ern Rail­wayana Auc­tions, Per­shore, Worces­ter­shire, 15 July

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The streets of Lon­don are paved with gold, it was once said, but it might just be that it’s the old street signs that are golden in­vest­ments. Cer­tainly the two City of Lon­don ex­am­ples sold by GWRA at Per­shore did well – Great Swan Al­ley EC2 made a ham­mer price of £480, while Aldgate High Street reached £340.

Top price in the mo­tor­ing sec­tion went to the triple-sided Na­tional Ben­zole Mix­ture petrol pump globe pre­viewed in

CCW 12 July, that sold for £920. A blue Su­per Shell globe made £440, and a Na­tional Pre­mium ex­am­ple £380.

A Keep Left sign sold for £440, while an AA Ho­tel New Coven­try Street Lon­don WC1 went for £410. The RAC A30 Yeovil di­rec­tion sign raised £280 and the AA Lyng and Durston ex­am­ple £220. gwra.co.uk
