    Glad you bumped this one. Hadn't seen it before. Inspired me to post one of my own.

    And just to get this rolling in the new forum, a couple more signs I made a while back. Guess the country of origin for each!

    Highway signs? Neat!

    Still working on a set for the entire country, but this is a sign for Highway 100 in the Province of Long Island in the Commonwealth of New England. It begins at the Montauk Point Spaceport and ends in Long Island City at the junction of Highway 125 in Long Island City.

    Highway numbering in New England is done on the three separate fields as seen on the sign.

    1 = Originates in the Province of Long Island
    0 = Originates in Suffolk County, Long Island
    0 = The first highway designated in Suffolk County

    federal highways are usually displayed in latin first and local languages second, while county/province highways are displayed in local languages only

    and yes it's in kilometres

    I’m trying to figure out which Sydney that is. Sydney, NS? Is that really 1300 km from Plymouth?

    Why the use of Latin?

    Columbia has 50 official languages and counting, so Latin is used by the government (political neutrality etc)
