US HIGHWAY SIGNS

Embossed cutout US marker from the 1930's or early 40's. This sign features 'cats eye' reflector marbles. Instead of trying to cram 'NEW HAMPSHIRE' into the crown section of the sign, the state settled for the 'N.H.' abbreviation (Collection of Robert Edgar).

STATE HIGHWAY SIGNS

Semi-current state route marker. These signs are in the process of being replaced by newer signs that fill in the black border around the Old Man in the Mountain. (my collection).

Older route marker used from the 1920's into the 1950's (and possibly later). Like all New England signs in the early part of the twentieth century, this sign is a simple rectangle. Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts still use signs of this general style (Photo by Michael Summa).
