Introduction 
Hello everyone, welcome to the official site of everything related to local street signs and street name blades past and present. Street signs help identify a city, town, village or county in addition to identifying a road or a street. Some are simple. Some are identical. And, some are unique. Photos of street signs taken by the webmaster will be shared here. Links to websites with photos taken by others are gradually being added. Facebook and Instagram pages will be established very soon. Thanks everyone for your patience and understanding.

 About the website 
The site was created by Jayson Dodge in the late 2000s as a source of information on what ths street signs and street name blades look like. Since childhood, Jayson has had a fascination with street signs and learned the names of streets since he was little. He loves to travel by car, especially around the back roads. He has taken dozens of photos while on road trips throughout the United States, British Columbia in Canada and Baja California in Mexico over the course of the last three decades.
