Street name signs of Birmingham (5)

And finally in our survey of the metal street name signs of Birmingham, we look at a few oddities. The standard form for signs is for the street name to be in black (on a white background) and the postcode in red. Any extra information underneath the street name is in black. This is usually adhered to but there are a few examples around the city where it isn't quite right!

Back Road, Kings Norton

Greenfield Road, Harborne

Mill St, Aston

Finally, we have a Birmingham pre-war street name sign... but in Southam, Warwickshire! There must be an interesting story about this sign...
