Hidden Treasure

I recently came across this relic in East Boston:

There are only a few of these old bus stop signs still standing. Route 121 evening and Saturday service last operated in 1981, so this sign probably dates back to the late 1970s. Also note the stop number (5907) in the lower left corner; a very useful piece of information not found on modern bus stop signs!

Hey. Where was this sign exactly? I am curious since I am doing an information sign project.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you! It is located at Lexington Street @ Shelby Street. It is the stop just before Eagle Square.
