old NYC sign

This is a pre-war porcelain street sign from Greenwich Village. This sign was placed at the corner where Eleanor Roosevelt lived in the years immediately following FDR's death.

 

The frame and mounting hardware, although of the correct vintage, are not original to the sign; they came from a street corner in Easton, PA.
