These signs are in Heaton. One's on Warwick Street, one on Heaton Road.
I don't know whether the others are still there. I used to know of five around Newcastle. All saying different things. We used to look out for them, speculate as to their meaning. I've tried googling before, now google exists, but with no success. We tried rearranging the letters, to see if they were some kind of anagram. Putting the different signs together. No joy.
Last Friday I was walking through Heaton for my haircut (Leaf, highly recommended eco hair salon for both men and women) and saw them again. I snapped these photos, meaning to post and see if anyone could shed any light on them.
But I googled first. And google is my friend. I have finally found this.
It's an art project. And a great one that's been making me think, on and off, for the last 13 years. Quite impressive.
It's made me want to go and get photos of the ones that are left, while I still can.
(just in case it is unclear: the first says 'the crabs for the curves'; the second 'onwards and to drive out with')
(also, four posts in four days? i have no idea what's going on. blogger's scheduled post feature, though, is very helpful!)
