Original Stanford University Vintage medal street sign. The sign measures 24 inches by 6 inches and is for "Lomita Dr." 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, Lomita Dr. is an original campus street that once permitted access to the west side of the Quad--the east side being entered by Lasuen Street. Lomita is Spanish for "little hill." One section of Lomita Drive begins at Campus Drive West and runs parallel to Palm Drive toward the Quad. The other section runs from Santa Teresa Street to the Knoll.
