Original Stanford University Vintage medal street sign. The sign measures 24 inches by 6 inches and is for "Valparaiso." 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, Valparaiso was one of the original streets in the first residential area on campus. It was named for the seaport in Chile by the same name through which many gold rush hopefuls passes en route to California.
