The Pre-Worboys Traffic Signals sign

The Pre-Worboys sign consisted of a hollow red triangle over a white plate with a picture of a traffic signal (either Colour or Black and White) in the upper panel and the legend "SIGNALS AHEAD" in the lower panel.


The sign underwent a change in 1964 to have a new symbol, with rounded edges with red,amber and green aspects, inside a red triangle.
It has not changed since this original drawing.
