Sign used for segregating transportation terminal seating area
- A hand painted wood segregation sign. The sign is painted with a whitewash background which has thinned with age. In large 3-1/2 inch hand painted lettering, in dark blue paint, the piece reads: [COLORED SECTION.] The board retains two pencil lines used to guide the lettering. The back has only the whitewash, now with a slight green hue from age. There are eye screws on the top and bottom of the sign.
