Signs & Symbols in Tallinn




Looking through my photos from this summer's trip, I noticed that a lot of the pictures I took in Tallinn were of signs and symbols around the city. I'm not sure why these things fascinate me, but Tallinn is a medieval city and maybe one or two of these are original shop signs. And I think the Steampunk Theatre is new since the last time I was in Tallinn.








And finally, we didn't see much graffiti in Estonia, but this one caught my eye. I really have to hope it isn't a comment on my latest novel!

Lovely, aren't they. I like signs like this too. I haven't seen Steampunk theatre, is it a real theatre or is it a shop or something?

It is the little things that make visits to far away places so interesting. There seems to be a lot of care being taken to get the signs 'right'.

Very interesting signs. I like places where the signs reveal the history and culture.

LOL on the last comment...I think all over the world an interest has taken place to return to our ancestry of the arts, even though many continue with the trades of hand made crafts...it all comes back around and I love it too!

Although in Asia to see them want to be westernized was daunting, when in rural parts of their country they still embrace the old ways and keep them alive, maybe from circumstance rather than choice, but it was great discovering it all!

I especially like worthy elk soup--is it the soup that is worthy or the elk?

You are quite the little traveler!!! I, too, am fascinated by signs, especially if they're ancient...for example, Italian signs in medieval cities.

Defo not a comment on your latest book!!!!!
Lovely signs:)

Signage is actually one of those elements of a city that changes more than you might at first think from culture to culture, so it makes a great reminder of a visit.
