Sign Posts

A Sign Post at Flamstead End
from postcard posted in 1912

As more and more people started to explore the countryside by bicycle and later the motor car, there was a need to better signposting, and the above is a good example of the fingerposts that were used in the early 20th century. It appears that the above post was a victim of fly posting.  

If you can add to the information given above tell me.
