Lodi School 1912-1937 sign

A Sunday afternoon drive in the Hilda, Alberta area.
This sign is located southwest of town.  I thought the
birds were part of the sign until they flew away.

It's the same basic design as the Flat Valley School
sign (posted earlier) with a few changes to the details.
This one has wagon wheels, horseshoes and maple
leaves in the upper corners and two bells while
the other has fences on either side of the school,
only maple leaves, but larger, in the upper corners
and just one bell .

The Flat Valley School sign is here:

  1. I have seen these in many parts of Alberta in varying designs and sizes. I appreciate that someone marked places with a sign whether it is plain or ornate. The fact that a bit of history is marked is important. I do like seeing the fancier ones in the middle of nowhere.

    1. I agree, BW. Fancy or plain, any sign marking a historical spot is a good sign. All of the signs I've come across this past several months have been chance encounters which makes them all special.

  2. That is a great sign! I always wonder how many markers I drove by before I was paying attention to these kinds of things.

    1. It's a nice one, Jenn. I'm sure I've missed a good many over the years...sometimes if you blink, you miss it.
