Corner of Norfolk Street & Reynold Street

This old shop at the corner of Norfolk Street and Reynold Street is now an extension of the Tameside Animal Shelter charity shop.

There are two diamond-shaped signs with the letters "H" and "V" respectively in white on blue on the side of the building.

See the close-ups on Hyde Daily Photo.

The only other instance of a similar sign I've come across is a "V" sign on the former Gee Cross Post Office.

I can only think that they refer to "hydrant" and "valve" for the benefit of the fire service, but I can find no information anywhere about signs with this particular design.

A contribution to signs, signs.


  1. in spite of the H and V, it might be hard to find this hydrant and valve!

  2. I didn't see the H and V until you pointed them out!
