Amsterdam Signwriting

I found these two painted signs a few doors away from each other close to where we live. Note the distinct “iJ” form, and the way it’s just painted over a sign underneath. In a modern world of vinyl lettering, it’s rare to see these careful signwriting these days.

Either they got called away before finishing the phone number, or at the time the exchange was limited to about 100 numbers!
