Original Stanford University Vintage medal street sign. The sign measures 24 inches by 6 inches and is for "Lasuen St." 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, Lasuen Street was named by David Starr Jordan, the founding president of Stanford. It commemorates Father Fermin Francisco de Lasuen, who left Spain in 1759 and served at various Franciscan missions in Mexico.
