Exhibition of historic facade signs in Vienna

Exhibition of historic facade signs in Vienna, Austria

Stadtschrift, an association for the collection, preservation and documentation of historic facade signs created this open air exhibition at a fire wall in Vienna. I love the idea to show them in public instead of a presentation inside a hall. So we can see these signs in a way we used to do on our walks to school or job in earlier times.
