INTERSTATE HIGHWAY SIGNS

Delaware dropped the state name from its signs sometime in the 1980's. Here is an older sign with the state name (Photo by Joe Koehler).

U.S. HIGHWAY SIGNS

A state route masquerading as a US route. The US-202 sign is correct; however, the US-141 sign should be DE-141 (Photo by Joe Koehler).

Older embossed cut-out US shield from the 1920's or 30's. (Collection of Robert Edgar).

STATE HIGHWAY SIGNS

Still hanging in Wilmington is this older cut-out state route sign (Photo by Joe Koehler)

Signs from the 50's and earlier were rectangular with "DEL" or "DELAWARE" at the top of the sign. This particular sign is probably from the 1950's or early 60's. (Photo by Michael Summa)

OTHER ROUTE SIGNS

You won't see these on the road any longer. These are the old Delaware Turnpike trailblazers that used to hang along I-95 between the Maryland state line and Wilmington. I'm not sure when these came down, but they were definitely gone by 1990. (Photo by Joe Koehler)
