St eet silos sell at auctioo
A SELECTION of historical Dundee road signs has sold at auction.
The enamel signs, characterised by their distinctive royal blue background with white, upper case lettering, were sold at auctioneers Curr and Dewar.
Stephen Dewar said items of local historical interest are always popular.
“The collection was brought to us by one of our well-known customers, who decided to have a clear-out,” he said.
“We were happy to take them on, as items of local historical note are always very popular among our Dundee bidders, who love to see these sort of things.
“One gentleman in particular was very interested in the sign for Graham Place, as he shared his first name with the street.
“Princes Street was sold for £65, Graham Place for £80, Scott Street for £75, Muirton Road f or £65, Logie Street for £55 and King Street for £60.
“The signs were quite difficult to date. We believe they are from the post-war era, circa 1950 or thereabouts.”
