Street Sign Update - Demeaning Old People Alert!?!

Posted by

It struck me today in our meander to Warkton that the street sign (below) seen in Brigstock, Northamptonshire, depicting Elderly People is in no way reflective of the reality of most old people's lives. 

It seems to me that every which way you turn, you see 90 year olds skydiving, abseiling, running marathons and doing kung fu. 

It's at best inaccurate. At worst demeaning to our senior citizens. Old people rarely have a crooked back and carry a walking stick.

The street sign should be given a reimagining like the one below.
