Original Stanford University vintage medal street sign. The sign measures 30 inches by 6 inches and is for "Arboretum Rd." The sign was acquired when the university swapped out all its street signs 30+ years ago. It is a unique and rare item. Condition is as you would expect for a vintage street sign with usual wear and a bit of rust but in great shape overall. Not a reproduction. The name of the street is in raised black lettering.
According to Richard W. Cottle's 2005 work produced for the University titled, Stanford Street Names, Arboretum Road owes its name and location to Leland Stanford's vision of an arboretum. As early as 1880, Stanford spoke of his intention to "produce from all parts of the globe," every tree likely to succeed in California soil.
