Barrie is possibly the only city I have noticed to italicize their street signs

It looks odd, doesn't it?

I like it, though. Actaully, I just love this picture. The perfectly balanced asymmetry. Just love it.

I guess they think it looks elegant! It is a great shot.

Good eye! In all the times I've been to Barrie I have NEVER noticed that!

It looks as if it is an exclusive area -- where even the street signs aren't common and ordinary !

Fancy letters to match their fancy street lights!

Nora said...

Is it a special city other than that?

I think you are right...I do not think I have ever seen a street sign in italics. Pretty classy if you ask me. What a neat find. genie

it's pretty since it's large and clear
here in NJ the street signs are kept a mystery so the last thing we need is italics

@Nora: no it is not a special place. pretty dull and ordinary, actually. but it is in a great location being n ski/cottage country and still within an hours commute to Toronto,

I don't believe I've ever seen italicized street signs before. Now I'll be paying more attention. Great catch!
