Subject :A Wooden School Crossing Sign From The 1960's
Published By :
Location :
Estimated Year : 1960
Media Type : Artifact
Source : Ian Anderson, Ipoh
Remark :

This Sign, found in Ipoh, is definitely homemade and would have been used by a school crossing warden who was generally known as "The Lollipop Man".

The Sign is 20 inches in diameter, made of plywood, double sided and advises STOP, Children Crossing in both Malay and Chinese. Originally it had a wooden handle that has snapped off.

Today similar metal signs are issued by local government, but they only carry one word BERHENTI ("STOP" in Malay).
