I attach a photo of an air-raid shelter sign (sheet steel 12"x24") The current two suggestions for this are either a stencil to spray a sign on a wall or the filtere for a light box used internally in building exempt from blackout regulations to mark the entrance to a basement/crypt used as a shelter

Any other suggestions?

It could be a stencil made out of metal to make it more durable, but to me looking at the S, it looks more a sign that would have been lit up from behind, to show individual shelters, IE shelter A here Shelter B here and C here etc. but I could well be wrong.

Regards
Gerwyn

I make the repro shelter signs and worked from an original stencil very similar to this. I'd upload photos but it seems like photobucket has spat its dummy out.

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]
