SIGNS GUARD INVALIDS FROM HONKING CARS (Feb, 1932)
SIGNS GUARD INVALIDS FROM HONKING CARS
When the city surveyor of Birmingham, England, recently sought a way to end the honking of automobiles outside the homes of sick persons, he devised the means shown in the photograph. Signs bearing a warning legend were prepared and placed in readiness by city officials. Now a written or telephoned request brings a messenger who will affix the notice outside the afflicted home, to stay until it is no longer needed. The scheme is a boon to invalids, as public hospitals have hitherto been the only ones favored with “Quiet” signs.
