Rollsigns from Arizona
Phoenix, Arizona
This mylar rollsign set is marked as being from a GM bus, but it came off of an AM General bus. The route number
sign (left) is dated December 11, 1979, and is unique in that the font used is the same one commonly used on road
signs. It has 122 exposures which include the blanks at either end. The destination sign (right) is dated December 4,
1979 and has 123 exposures which also includes the blank exposures at either end. The images of these signs have
been enlarged to 1 1/2 times that of the standard size on the site for detail. Their respective sign tags are shown below.
Both rollsigns were graciously donated to the historic collection by Dale Knutson.
