Somehow, old rusty street signs seem to be more forceful in their message than their more modern replacements. The first below says, "No parking" and the second indicates a one-way street.
Each of the two signs below was nailed to a plane tree some years ago. The tree grew around the sign and now looks like it's eating it! One sign was found near the river in Puisserguier and the other about 60 miles south, in the Pyrenees. Beware of sign-munching trees!
