Controversial sign in Stamford Hill

stamford-hill-uk-1

The artist who put up this and other road signs in Stamford Hill (London) reportedly thought he was celebrating local life. However, it got reported to the police as a hate crime. Maybe he was unaware of the significance of the red triangle, which makes the sign read “Beware of Orthodox Jews”. It’s a good job he didn’t use a red circle which would have read “Orthodox Jews forbidden”. Perhaps putting the figure on a blue square would have been better.

His series of signs remind me of Mythogeography.

Not sure what is being banned here, but that is probably a picture of a boat, and it is saying don’t moor here. There is a mooring ring very close to the sign.

Toad between Drakes Broughton and Besford

The sign is hinged, so that the toad can be hidden, presumably when drivers are not at risk of skidding on them.

Thanks Sandie.
