1960s IND New York Subway Sign w/Routes: D 6TH AVE HOUSTON 14x28 inches


This New York Subway sign is 14 inches wide and 44 inches long. It is made of a cloth-like material called Vellum.

Routes are: D 6TH AVE HOUSTON, DD 6TH AVE.

The sign is in fantastic condition for its age.

Please carefully review the photos before making your purchase. There is a small tape repair I made along the bottom edge of the sign. I only use 3M gaffer tape for sign repairs because it is what subway employees used to repairs the vellum signs while they were still in use.

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.
