Contacted Hardens, they only do wooden ones. I want a cast iron-slate one similar to the original ones. Someone used to do the down at the markets but they aren't there anymore. Another person has a page on Facebook called Belfast Streetsigns but has no contact details. Tried the phone book, no joy.

Would that be the bloke from Short strand who has a gallery called the Red Barn?

Tera,

Why don't you give the city council a quick ring and ask them where they get their street signs from?

chink, contacted Frankie Quinn in the Red Barn Gallery and he gave me the blokes name and mobile number. He's on holiday until thursday but that's not a problem. Thanks very much for your help, and you also bobden :smile:
