Hi there, this is Francis Khoury, and I welcome you to Garden State Signals. This site is a nostalgic image scrapbook of vintage traffic signs and signals, mostly from New Jersey, both on the street and in collections. Plus, there’s a little detailed info on some signals for the collectors in the audience.
New Jersey was always a busy state, with a big variety of early traffic control equipment. The antique signs and signals that I once saw from the passenger seat of my parents’ car are now virtually extinct, but I have managed to collect and even refurbish a few of them over the years as one of my Zen-esque hobbies.
I hope you enjoy your visit and that you’ll come back soon, as I will be continually adding content.
In memory of Jesse Vallely
