Street signs in Warsaw, Łódź and Wrocław

This:

is the standard polish commie-times street sign. The font varied from city to city, but the general layout, colours and shape was like this.

In the 1996 the city of Warsaw decided that those were rather crappy and introduced new Miejski System Informacji - The Information System of the City. It consists of several elements, the most basic of which is the street name sign:







Apart from the street name you get the borough name (at the red field) and the house numbering range in the current block (in the upper right corner).

The signs are brown in the historical boroughs:


The other elements of the system are:

Fingerposts for pedestrians:


Direction signs for cars:



Signs informing about your position related to the Vistula river:


Maps:


Street name explaination:


Currently the same system is being introduced in Łódź and Wrocław.

Sydney's suburbs can range from extremely basic, for small streets

to less basic for freeways and major roads:
