endangered species

Check out these beauties. Big thanks to David Beckitt for allowing me to share his stellar picture. When he tweeted the picture, he referred to it as an ‘endangered species’. That’s the perfect description for what these streets signs are. Such a shame there are only a few left. David’s picture was taken on Quebec St. in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. Those letters are just so regal and kerned so perfectly. They are so modest, yet so bold. What a gem.

When I saw David’s picture, I immediately thought of the street signs in Tequis. Here’s a close up:

Such a different vibe from the picture taken in England. This is hand painted on tile and then embedded into brick. Look at that detail! So very Mexican.

Don’t get me started on this graffiti:

So badass.
