The Mickleham Bends on the A24:

And the dashed lines; it was these that had a meaning — What was it?

The dashed line meant that the road lead to the road below it in a short distance, as a road is shown in brackets nowadays. Routes in brackets were to be found further away down the named routes. I Think!! :)
Mick gets the Points!
The dashed lines mean that the indicated place is 'turning off' the main road above.
Not sure that was widely known back then.

...and then we have the "detached" pre-Warboys signs provided by the Royal Automobile Club one with the previously unintelligible black and white banner.

How's your memories :?: Have an August 2021 go at this old poser :-D

But what about their traditional rivals. Well here's a couple of their old signs still in situ.

No attempt at concealment or deviousness but anyone know of the top of their head where these signs are?

Worth a virtual can of Top Deck Limeade and Lager at a push :-D

There's a nice little business in Notices, interpretative boards etc, and a nice location to work from.

Osprey Signs the Old Powerhouse Etal Northumberland. There work is all over the Country. Have a flick through their gallery. https://www.ospreyco.com/gallery
