I know that road signs were removed early in the war, but did that also include street names? Were signs such as 'High Street' still attached to buildings during the war?

If so, does anyone have any photos showing signs that would show the style to make a reproduction? I'm particularly interested in Kent, but any photos would be good.

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]
