Dependable Erection

Friday, February 08, 2008


Gary's been blogging Vickers St. all week over at Endangered Durham. On Monday, he pointed out that the old concrete street sign at the corner of Jackson and Vickers may be the last of its kind in Durham.

These guys aren't being used for their original purpose anymore, but there's at least a couple of dozen along Knox St. at the south entrance to Duke Park. They're there ostensibly to keep idiots from driving over the curb and into the park. Most of them have lost their name tags, but not quite all.

This one once occupied the corner of High St. and Moreland, about a mile or so southwest of the sign Gary featured.

UPDATE: Welcome Endangered Durham readers.

Here's one more photo showing how many of these signposts have made it over to Duke Park.

  • Wow! That's so cool. Thanks for posting this Barry. What is the other street name on the "High" marker? It looks like --REL, but I can't make out the first two letters.
