Original 20th Century English Large Wooden Railway Sign Decorative Wall Art

About

A very rare and hard to find large Industrial wooden sign from the height of the UK's railway era. Raised lettering with reflectors, spelling ‘Whistle’, is mounted on wooden boards with glimpses of old green paint still visible. Originally used to warn drivers to blow their whistles before entering tunnels. This sign is very large and would make an absolutely stunning, statement piece of wall art.
