christies’ auction of street signs

Our old blog-friend Laurence of Christies (job title: Specialist, Mechanical Music and Technical Apparatus) dropped me an email to tell me there’s an auction on which may be of interest to funkypancake readers, especially those who love street signs.
he sent me these pictures and there’s more in the guidebook
The sale is on the 31st May and more details can be found here (signs start from lot 221)
There’s a few street signs including one of a tube station which no longer exists !
