Caerphilly Castle - Wales, UK

This sign almost looks like an eye, so shiny and round and blue. The wide shot shows a quaint little town in the shadow of the Caerphilly Castle, one of the pre-eminent castles in Western Europe.

Submitted by Peter Mae.

Many thanks to Peter for the wonderful and numerous submissions. And for supplying tight and wide shots so we can see detail and context. Peter's next stop is Straford-upon-Avon so perhaps we'll see a round sign involving the Bard before too long.

Caerphilly Castle- Defender of Circular Signs in Wales, UK

All of the images of circular sign posted under the heading Caerphilly Castle were shot by Peter Mae just beyond the castle in this image.

Lexington & 29th Street

This is a bit of a stretch because the sign is flush to the wall but I think it still counts.

Cardiff Bay - Wales, UK

Seems like round signs are used exclusively for food, beverage, beauty (hair salons, nail salons, and spas), and, in the UK, banking.
Are these signs a current trend? Are they retro? Are they here to stay? Fill out the survey below.

These images taken and submitted by Peter Mae.

Chelsea Market, New York

3rd Avenue & 34th Street

I know I already posted a Harp sign; I can live with repeats.

Oops - this is a repeat but I'll leave it because it's a solo in this shot and it's doubled up in the previous one.
