The enamelled panel for Abbey Road and Downing Street are up for sale
A Kilburn street sign which has become synonymous with the name of an album by The Beatles is being sold off in a silent auction.
The sign post for Abbey Road, which goes through Kilburn and St John’s Wood, is being placed under the hammer at a ‘garden statuary and ornament sale’.
The enamelled panel is being changed as part of the ‘Legible London’ campaign by Westminster Council and Transport for London, alongside the sign for Downing Street which is also being sold.
The successful buyer, who must place a sealed bid, will also be given a certificate of authenticity.
