Strictly not Pre-Worboys sign as the road number is incorporated in the street name, but there were two more separate ones along the road as well.

Pre-Worboys no through road Elstree

This was in such poor condition it took months to realise the font was pre-Worboys, as there's a much newer one on the opposite corner which isn't and confused the issue for a while. The narrow pitch and capital G give it away though despite the condition.

ROI Pre-Warboys start of urban area sign - Coppermine - 11539.jpg
ROI Pre-Warboys start of urban area sign

One of at least three variations of this type of sign used before adoption of modified Warboys-style direction signage in Ireland. Another variant has the old Bord Failte logo instead of the harp, while yet another (later) variant is the same style as the modern R-road type, but with the pre-Warboys font used. This example from Portmagee, Co Kerry.

Gives then-current distances to Holywell (behind the camera) and Abergele (in front).

A plate with LLANELWY on it has since been added, although Holywell is still untranslated.

Nothing new here besides the combination, but the no through road is painted on rather than raised or stuck on which I haven't seen before.

This is the plastic version of the metal sign with the smaller fonts designed to light up although none of the ones here did. There were three of each type but the third old one was broken.
