Quirky and Quaint: Signs of Saint John (Pt. 1)

On a recent late Spring visit to Saint John, N.B. the distinctive signs adorning area shops and walls added lots of color and charm to a meandering walk through the city center.

  1. Signs reflect the character of the community, and from what you’ve captured, I’m intrigued. Newfoundland is the last part of Canada I’ve yet to visit. Thanks for reminding me to keep high on my bucket list!

  2. So glad to see another post from you. We never got to St. John when in N.B. We did spend several lovely nights in St. Andrews and took the ferry over to Grand Manan. That island was a trip back to the 1950’s and we loved it.

  3. These are wonderful, Brett – very creative and innovative – and as you mentioned, some have a definite quirkiness about them – all of them a visual delight!

    To be honest, I’ve never visited St.John, or even New Brunswick, but I must try and get there sometime.

    Good to have you back – thanks for posting these!

  4. Welcome back, Brett! It is great to see you again!! These are terrific signs. I particularly like the “Backstreet Records” sign. The gramophone is always a welcoming symbol. I noted that the actual sign itself appears to be that of a record. Wonderful post, Brett! Cher xo
