MINT Unused 1960s IND New York Subway Sign Bronx CONCOURSE 205th Street, Bedford Park, 19x30 inches


This New York Subway sign is 19 inches wide and 30 inches long. It is made of a cloth-like material called Vellum.

This particular section was acquired in a group of sign sections that were never installed into any trains. This section lacks the stitch marks that are typical of signs that were part of rolls inside the trains.

This sign was most likely printed in 1967 or 1968. In 1969, the New York City Transit Authority began experimenting with a plastic-like sign material, and these cloth signs would soon become antiques.

These are the northern destinations on what is now the C Train.

This sign came from trains that operated between the 1930s and 1970s on the lettered routes. The IND started service in 1936. Shortly after, the City of New York annexed control of the other, then-private, subways. While the operations remained distinct at first, services were realigned to share tracks in the 1960s.
