Santa Monica, California is a city on the coast of the bay of the same name. Surrounded on three sides by the city of Los Angeles, it is well known for its resorts, beaches, and nightlife. In recent years, it has also become the home to a number of video game development studios. Santa Monica is important to the history of America’s transportation network, too, as the ultimate destination of the famous Route 66.
The state of California hasn’t always posted signage on the state’s roads. Originally, in the southern part of the state, that was the responsibility of the Automobile Club of Southern California. One example of their handiwork is this Santa Monica City Limit sign. It bears the name of the city in large block letters, with the name of the club and its logo appearing at the bottom of the panel.
We’ve brought the classic ACSC Santa Monica City Limit sign back to life. Our replica is made to the exact standards ACSC used from 1929 to 1934. Every detail is nearly indistinguishable from the original, from the fonts to the glossy finish that closely resembles that of the original porcelain sign. Genuine ACSC signs are hard to find on the collector’s market. When they are available, they often fetch a handsome price. Save money and get exactly what you’re looking for with our precisely-made replica.
