Pre-Worboys 30 Banstead

This is the first wooden one I've ever come across. The credentials are dubious as not standard design or font, plus the vinyl appears to be newer than the background. But I think it unlikely to be from any other source and lasted so long, although the numbers may have been replaced since being made originally.

Speed limit/no through road

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.

The pole is like new and luckily its neighbour along the road still has it's ring on top as well.

I'd only seen one yellow striped pole by memory 4 days ago in an old photo of Piccadilly Circus, and then I found this in Beech Rd Ewell where it meets the main road.

Ancient speed limit sign - Coppermine - 19345.jpg
Ancient speed limit sign

rather the worse for wear, and not very firmly attached to the post, is this relic from a bygone age. When the sign was erected, the only regular services to the airport were DH89 biplanes built in the 1930s! (The helicopter service started in 1964 - the same year that Warboys reported. The DH89s hung on until 1970)

Old and New pre-warboys speed limit signs

An old Pre-warboys 15mph speed limit sign was recently replaced by a brand-new version by the army Authorities on army land at Brompton, Gillingham, Kent. Is this the only example of a 'Brand-New' Pre-Warboys design sign?

Pre-Warboys 15mph sign at Brompton, Gillingham, Kent, with a warboys school sign. The 15mph sign still exists, but its lost its school sign. They are on army land, which probably explains why they still exist! Photo by Mike Miller
