Signs of the Times--Scottish Edition

One of the delights of traveling, for me, is noting the ways people in other cultures express themselves.

A simple street name may catch the eye

(in Stomness, Shetland Islands) note how someone has tried to erase the "i" to make it an even better name)

The local lingo makes a familiar sign new again

(Shetland Islands)

Sometimes a sign reveals a location's heritage

(Stromness, Shetland Islands)

Some are punny....

(Kirkwall, Orkney Islands)

But others--usually my favorites--have an inexplicable origin.

(liquor store window, Glasgow, Scotland)
