Hand Painted signs of the amateur variety seemed to abound in Transylvanian back-streets. Most of them were practical warnings for selfish folk not to park their clapped-out Dacia cars in front of wooden garage doors but I particularly liked the "Posta" one with its envelope diagram, artfully slapped onto a doorway encrusted with years of weathered paint.

I blame it on all that polyvinyl gubbins.

Exactly, Bobby!

Looks like there aren't any uPVC door salesperson opportunities in Romania at the moment, and how much better the streets look for it...
