I love signs: their promise of discovery, their designs, and their urban lives. Here are some favorites from my trips.
Sign for the Theater of Balbus at Cádiz
Rooftop sign at the Madre Museum in Naples
Sign pointing to Glanum in the countryside near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence
Sign for the Arbeia Fort in the middle of the South Shields townscape
signs to all the best places in Mérida
Signs pointing to the amphitheater and theater at Arles, on a street with two names.
A street named "Amphitheater Ascent" at Lyon
Sign pointing to Córdoba's archaeological museum, with the Venus statue as a logo
Signs in Latin at the Wallsend train station
