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.
Cllr Robert Davis, deputy leader of Westminster City Council, said: “I’m sure the chance to acquire one of these signs will attract some lively bidding.”
The signs can be viewed at the auction site in Sussex from this Friday until May 21 between 10am – 4pm.
