Thanks for posting these. I remember seeing these at a lot of intersections. I don't know if it was the Alberta Motor Association, the province or the municipalities that erected and maintained those. The earliest they could've put up was in 1958, as the current CAA logo was changed at the time. The posts may have been removed or left to decay when the current urban style address signs went up.

The few fingerboards with distances specified on them have all been in metric, so it's a good guess that these were erected sometime post-metrification.  Between the late 70s and the late 90s, I'd say.

Those in metric may have been added later. I recall seeing those fingerboards before metrification, perhaps the late 60s. I can't recall if they had distances or just indicated small towns, halls, churches and highways. Unfortunately, I can't find any other photos online in my searches
