Another photo of the same scene, this time in 2005, note the additional sign on the wall, and the disappearance (relocation?) of the parking advice.



Here's the Main Road sign I referred to earlier, on the same building ... I wonder whether the Wolverhampton sign was moved around to the other wall, or has been joined by a second example?



Plus a bonus entry, this time seen in Whitchurch at around the same date

Just to answer my own question, the Wolverhampton sign has moved from one wall to the other, at The Shakespeare in Bridgnorth

One I always loved was the torch. I always thought that probably few people understood what it was about back then.

Oddly enough I don't think that "main road" sign is the one I remember, although it's a similar idea. IIRC the one I'm thinking of had main above road and some sort of glass (reflective?) border with an arrow pointing at the sky for straight ahead. It was mounted lower down too, more like waist height where it might be expected to catch vehicle headlights - definitely not above a window. Maybe there were a few around back in the day?
