Schenectady Signage

I’ve done a few of these posts now dedicated to the typography of various European cities. Now it’s my city’s turn. What I love about this particular group of signs is that you really get a sense of Schenectady’s history. Maybe that’s because I was drawn to particular signs that correspond to what I associate with the city, or because I know the city so well. Who can say?

I wonder if a native of Vienna, Stockholm, Berlin or Kraków would see the same thing when they looked at those signs.
