Alberta CAA Fingerboards

(1/15) > >>

Hello all!

I am creating a database of all the old CAA fingerboards signs remaining in Alberta.  These are relics and there are not too many left.  I'll be showing my pics of the ones I have found so far and where they are.  Post your own photos here so we can complete the database!  Many of these signs have fingers broken off of them, so we may never know their full extent, but still it is important to see them as we find them and to preserve their image.

All photos are taken by me.  All information on broken and missing fingerboards found using the Alberta Motor Association (AMA) database, converted onto a map by me.

i wasn't aware of such signs in Alberta.  (Though, to be honest, I don't really know that much about signs in general in Alberta).

In Ontario, there were similar street signs erected by Toronto newspapers to aid deliveries to the rural communities that comprise southern Ontario.
