Tiled Curb Street Signs – Jones

Mosaic tile street signs on many concrete curbs throughout Fort Worth date from 1938-39 when the Works Progress Administration funded a $1,000,000 street improvement program. City engineer D.L. Lewis was in charge of the program which included updating street signs, curbing, guttering, and road surfaces. Many of these attractive blue and white tile signs are extant today as valuable urban design amenities.
