Lincoln Avenue

Hidden in a corner of downtown Montreal, on a residential street named Lincoln Avenue, is a treasure trove of old street signs. They are in English, but surprisingly enough, they do not appear to have been taped over. Among the signs is an especially rare kind with white lettering and a blue background; it must predate the 1950s. Best of all, the signs are mounted on buildings rather than on free-standing signposts.
