Elizabeth Street is an east-west residential street in San Francisco, passing through the Noe Valley neighborhood. It begins at Grand View Avenue, just short of Market Street, and runs from there to Church Street. A second disconnected segment of it runs between Guerrero Street and San Jose Avenue. Elizabeth Street was named after Elizabeth Horner, wife of John Meirs Horner, an early settler who developed much of Noe Valley.
Our Elizabeth Street sign is a faithful replica of the classic signage posted in the field. We’ve made it according to the familiar 1965 specification for San Francisco street signs. This style, the last style of all-capitals signage, is no longer posted, though examples are still readily found in service. It carries the block number 600; this is where the intersection with Castro Street is located. Our sign makes a great gift for anyone from this part of San Francisco, anyone named Elizabeth, or both!
Our Elizabeth Street sign is a high-quality replica, printed in the United States on 14-gauge steel. Its glossy, non-reflective finish will allow it to serve, indoors or outdoors, for years to come. We’ve also included mounting holes allowing it to be installed flush against a wall, or cantilevered from a pole as seen on the streets of San Francisco. Choose from three sizes:
- 21 in. × 7 in.
- 30 in. × 10 in.
- 36 in. × 12 in. (the original size of the signs posted in the field)
You can also choose from the following layout options:
- Single-sided (arrow pointing right)
- Single-sided (arrow pointing left)
- Double sided (printed with a complementary legend on each side so the arrows point the same direction)
Want this sign in another size? Or with a different block number? Or are you buying for someone who spells her name “Elisabeth”? We’d be happy to customize this sign any way you like! We can even make these signs in the newer 2009 style (with mixed-case text) or one of the styles dating back to 1946 or even earlier. Placing a custom order is easy! Just contact Jake to get started.
