Street Name Boards

The size, material and colour of the street name boards of Madras have undergone several metamorphoses over the decades. The latest is the blue fibre(?) boards on steel pillars with white lettering, replacing the yellow concrete with black lettering.

Bright blue replaces the fading yellow.

It was interesting to see the old wall paintings with curious  props on the narrow Nalla Thambi Street in Triplicane.

Many a time it is difficult to a locate a particular numbered street in an area like Anna Nagar or Indira Nagar as the numbering of street defy any logic.

One misses the old area maps (with ‘You are Here’markers) in the planned neighbourhoods like CIT colony, Gandhinagar etc.
