Vintage pressed aluminium road sign for Kestrel Close. Do you love birds of prey, or is your last name Kestrel? These signs date from circa 1950 through to approx 1980 - this one is most likely a 1960s piece based on the location it was used in Dorset. Has obvious signs of use and some overpainting, but a great survivor. Many of these signs were scrapped in the 1980s/90s and replaced with either flat metal plates with letters stuck on, or plastic ones.
