Trainspotters NYC Walk/Don’t Walk Street Signs

IMG_3235
An amazing opportunity to own a piece of New York iconography comes in the shape of these original Walk/Don't Walk Street Signs from industrial salvage specialists Trainspotters.

These classic signs have never been used as they were in storage when the decision was taken in 1999 to decomission this style of sign and replace it with an LED graphic version. Made of cast aluminum and vandal-proof glass (and weighing a hefty 6.8kg) the signs have been fitted with new circuitry and flash at timed intervals. They can be either wall-mounted or suspended.

Owning a piece of NYC history will set you back a hefty £925 + VAT. Find out more here.

‘Our dinners are a real eye opener’ 1940s design poster

Trainspotters poster

We've previously featured the reclaimed vintage fittings and posters from Trainspotters. They've now issued their own poster: this unusual 'Our dinners are a real eye opener' print

The design is reproduced from a 1940s original and, as it was obviously once from a cafe or restaurant, would look great in a kitchen. 

It's been produced as a limited run and costs £80.
