Street Signs Will Aid Tourists (Aug, 1929)
I live in Portland, on Morrison St. actually, but I’ve never seen one of these.
Street Signs Will Aid Tourists
MOTORISTS need no longer crane their necks or flash on their spotlights at night attempting to discern a street’s name tacked high on a lamp post. At least motorists in Portland, Oregon, will not have to, for that city has adopted a means of showing tlie name of a street at the bottom of the posts where a person in a car may easily see it.
Not only is it placed in a favorable position, but the name of the street is flashed on and off automatically by small electric lights in the metal case. It is clamped firmly to the sidewalk and connection is made with the lamp post. These lighted street signs will be of great value to tourists.
