This piece consists of a pair of square tiles which, when placed together, form a rectangular-shaped traffic sign. On its smooth side, the tile has a design with black letters and red symbols, over a cream-colored background. Up until the 1960s tiles were manufactured with hand-operated presses which were later replaced by hydraulic ones. Therefore, the piece denotes a handicraft work.
Origin: Valparaíso. Donated by Chilquinta. It was removed in 2011 from the corner of Brasil Avenue and Freire Street. A similar tile can be found in Simón Bolívar Square, (on Edwards Street, near the corner of Yungay Street) close to its original location. This piece is part of the architectural and urban heritage of Valparaíso. Historical period: Republic, 20th century. Its exact production date is unknown.
