Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

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.”
