Children's crossing signs
Colour was introduced; sparingly, for maximum effect. A real professional at work I should say.
Whatever the country, as time goes on, road sign craftsmanship rapidly degrades. This former Portuguese colony won't stay behind. Any doubt about that is instantly killed by the results of a second visit 10 year after the first finds.
Most of all the new finds, however, are variations of the Mediterranean drawing. The class is explained in Malta. The same evolution happens with the Men at Work signs: newer signs also adhere to the Mediterranean family.
For an archipelago known for its endemic birds and plants it is a lost opportunity to become renowned for its roadsigns also.
