Lost Signs

Lost Signs
Let's see if we can find even more of those 'Lost Signs' this Year!
On this feature page in the Members' Area, ISS members will be able once again to help identify 'Lost Signs' i.e. those un-named slides from scanned collections.

If any of you 'sign detectives' know the proper name, location and/or date of any sign, just email the page manager. There are some very good ones that need a place in the Archives!

More located this week, thanks to all contributors!

Brian recently completed the latest edition of Archive DVDs containing over 26,000 signs available in our Archives.

One for archives from 1940 to 1999, and the other for archives from 2000
