Lilac Terrace is a short, quiet street spurring off of Stadium Way in Los Angeles. It runs along the foot of a large embankment, atop which Dodger Stadium lies. Also on Lilac Terrace is a site that the Los Angeles City Council deeded to the Hebrew Benevolent Society of Los Angeles in 1855. According to a historical marker installed on the site in 1968, this site was used as a burial ground, and “represented the first organized community effort by the pioneer Jewish settlers”.
We’ve made our Lilac Terrace street sign to the exact standards used by classic porcelain Los Angeles signage. The City of Los Angeles used this style of sign, affectionately dubbed the “shotgun-style” sign by collectors, from 1946 to 1967. It features the street name in white block font on a blue background. Beneath that is the block number and arrow in a smaller font. The sign panel is contoured to the text, giving it its distinctive “shotgun” shape.
Our Lilac Terrace street sign is printed on 14-gauge steel suitable for indoor or outdoor display. Like the original, it is non-reflective. We’ve recreated the fonts used on this classic signage in precise detail. We’ve made it available in two sizes: the original 30 in. × 10 in. size, and a convenient 21 in. × 7 in. scaled-down version. Additionally, we offer it in your choice of double-sided or single-sided print. For your convenience, all variations include pre-drilled mounting holes.
