Sheffield or Stockport

With a background of private apartments it is difficult to capture a good photograph of this old signpost erected by "Hyde Corporation" on Lumn Road. It was opposite the end of Queen Street which was a one-way street on to which lorries from James North factory exited. The factory closed in the late 1990s and this end of Queen Street was closed off making the sign redundant.

A contribution to signs, signs.


  1. This fine, old metal sign could use some TLC and paint. Perhaps it should be moved to a better location? Good eye.

  2. Old cast iron signs are a great find...I rarely see them here. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  3. It's certainly seen a lot of years.

    I used to swing from these arms on my way home up Lumn Road from Leigh Street Junior School.
