Signs of the City
In the city of swimming pools and movie stars, check out the most famous iconic signs, ranging from Disneyland to the Santa Monica Pier.
This sign in the window of a restaurant/nightclub in the Soho area of the City of Westminster encourages the public to indulge all their senses. Which isn't hard to do in Soho, London's gay and entertainment district. It has a high concentration of bars, cafés, nightclubs, restaurants and theaters, as well as adult shops and strip clubs.

Check out some of the local signs you can see around town in the streets of London.
Take a look at this nostalgic sign from when the Paris Metro first opened in 1900 for the World's Fair. Today it is the second busiest train system in the world. The official name is Compagnie du chemin de fer metropolitain de Paris. Try saying that fast a couple times.
This piece of artistry -- a Nashville postcard -- includes several Music City’s attractions including the Parthenon and the old Country Music Hall of Fame that are now gone. If you look closely, the mural includes a statue of the seventh US President Andrew Jackson, who owned a home in Nashville, known as The Hermitage.
