This sign dates from the 1920's and offers some good advice: Do Not Lean Over Edge of Platform! Even with the earliest transit systems impatient commuters were looking down the lines to watch for approaching trains. This relic of early New York transit history features a porcelain enamel sign, manufactured by Nelke Signs, mounted in a heavy duty hand-riveted iron frame with integral bracket for easy hanging. Perfect for a downtown loft or restaurant.
