Historic road sign moved to archives

Updated 2017-12-21 09:30:21 Shanghai Daily

Workers dug out the rare concrete road sign — a common sight in the 1920s — which was found recently in a downtown shantytown to move it to the Hongkou District's archives yesterday.

They first encased the antique signpost with wooden boards and dug it out with its foundation to avoid any damage, the district government said.

Officials said It will be helpful for research into the city's development and renovation. The signpost, with its street name barely discernible, stood near 90 Zhangqiao Road in an old residential neighborhood in Hongkou.
