The street name signs of Oakham

In Oakham today to visit the Dowager Lady Bonkers in hospital, I noticed that at one time the practice in the town was to paint street names on the side of houses.

Some, like Station Street, are well preserved. Others, like Kings Road, have decayed.

And some, like Long Row, have been imaginatively vandalised.
