Product Description

An iconic original antique street sign for one of Plymouth’s (Devon, Great Britain) most famous landmarks: UNION STREET.

The sign is made up of 2 parts, one with UNION and the other with STREET, it was salvaged from a commercial premise in the 1950s. It has been painted white with black lettering. There are screw holes to affix it to a wall. Condition is very good.

Frequented by revellers and Royal Navy sailors alike, Union Street is synonymous with Clubs and the Red-Light District in Plymouth. On a normal weekend, thousands of people would meet up, drink, dance, exchange bodily fluids, fight, in whichever order the evening threw at them. Fine eateries, such as Kebab shops and KFC were dotted along the straight street. The Police meat vans and the Naval Provosts vied for space with the ranks of taxis. Union Street in Plymouth, Devon, is a long straight street connecting the city centre to Devonport, the site of Plymouth's naval base and docks. Originally the home of wealthy people, it later became an infamous red-light district and the location of most of the city's night-life. A must for anyone who has been in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines.
