Antique Paris street signs
Antique Paris street signs : These antique cast iron street signs indicate local lanes in the county of the « SEINE » which existed as an administrative location from 1795 to 1968. The « SEINE » area included 12 communes within 12 kilometres of Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral. The « SEINE » département was dissolved in favour of a re-organized Paris administration, so antique street signs such as these were phased out.
These three indicate:
Chemin vicinal N°2 Territoire de Drancy,
Chemin vicinal N°3 Pont de Bondy,
Chemin vicinal N°4 Route des Petits Ponts.
Each of these signs was cast in iron, with the texts in relief.
