Please add any unusual "original" electrical signs here or send them to me to be posted.

Hi Joe:

Here is a sign to add to the "Unique Sign" thread. Found this one on a B.C. Hydro pad mount transformer outside Victoria, British Columbia a couple of years ago.

The French double-negative just seems so appropriate to the situation (Ne touchez pas a rien -- Don't touch nothing!)

The triangle signs on a yellow background are the official standard in the U.K. now. The one pictured has appeared everywhere in recent years.
