Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, is a charming community whose vibrancy is hinted at by the variety of colorful shop signs and other markers found along the town’s main street. This sampling — I know I missed a few (my apologies) — suggests as much.
I love Annapolis Royal!
I’ve never seen it spelled jewellery.
Australia and UK spell it that way. Guess Canada uses that spelling through shared history with UK and as part of the Commonwealth.
Great signs, Brett
Great way to document the intangible spirit of a town in a tangible way. Looks like there a few graphic designers getting lots of work, too.
Katherine, shop signs and the like are simple things, but the collection reflects something intangible and nice as you suggest.
Yes indeed. The way you gave a written prelude to the series, set them in a context that I don’t think would have occurred to me on my own. I liked that wee bit of direction.
Brett – you can’t have missed any, could you. A brilliant compilation.
Trust you’re keeping well. We miss Atlanta.

Hi, Richard, so nice to hear from you! I hope you and your family are well also. All the best, Brett
Annapolis Royal is a special part of Nova Scotia. Love the signs!
Thanks! Yes, it’s a gorgeous area! 🙂
What a neat idea to take a set of shots of just street signs. Nicely done. I like the tree reflections in the law office sign.
Thanks! I’ve enjoyed the occasional bewildered stare when I’ve been shooting just signs. 🙂
What a beautiful and interesting collection of photos.
Love this post! We visited Annapolis Royal in 2012. In fact, I was scrolling down going “where’s the library sign?” and then I found it.
Thank you for visiting The Glasgow Gallivanter.
I love this post! Nova Scotia has some fantastic, colorful, charming signs…Mahone Bay is one of my favorite places for sign sighting. I’m glad someone is writing about this stuff. 🙂
Brittany, Mahone Bay is picturesque and wonderful for signs and many other things! 🙂 Brett
