Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented J 111.3 29, 1913.

Application filed January 27, 1912. Serial No. 673,861.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM H. FILER, a citizen of the United' States of America, re-

siding at Grove City, in the county of Mer-' cer and State of Pennsylvania, have invent-' ed certain new and useful Improvements in Sign-Posts, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the companion application, filed under even date.

The primary ob ect of this invention is to concrete or other composite matter that can be readily molded and shaped to provide a durable structure for supporting signs along a thoroughfare or at the intersection of roads, the support having the requisite qualifications to withsta'ndthe forces of nature.

Another ,object of this invention is to provide apost or support upon which signs can be easily mounted for indicating sites, directions or as advertisements, the signs being supported in a manner that prevents the signs'from accidentally shifting and thereby misdirecting. I

A further object of this invention is to provide a sign having novel braces and reinforcements that add rigidity to thesame without any undue increase in weight.

Vith the above and other objects in view, the invention resides in the. novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter specifically described and then claimed.

Reference will now be had to the drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a perspective view of a sign post .in accordance with this invention, Fig.

2 is a horizontal sectional view of the same,

and Fig. 3 is an enlarged vertical sectional view of the sign post.

A sign post in accordance with this invention comprises a base plate 1 and an upright or pedestal 2. The base late 1 is rectangular in plan and isprov'idid with a central vertical opening 3, saidbas'e plate being'made of concrete or other plastic material that can be seasoned and hardened to provide a durable structure. The upright or pedestal 2 is made of a material similar.

to the base plate 1, and said upright gradu- .spectively ally tapers from the lower end thereof to the upper end. The upright has a longitudinal opening 4 alining with the opening 3 of the base plate 1. Mounted in the openings'3 and 4 are metallic sleeves 5 and 6 reand extending through said sleeves is a tie rod 7 that has the iOWQLQlld thereof provided witha nut 8 against the bottom 'of the base plate ,1. The upper end of the tie rod extends above the upper end of the uprightand mounted upon said tie rod are signs or panels 9 and 10, the latter being mounted uponthe upper edge of the former and posit oned at right angles thereto. These signs or panels are made of a material similar to the upright or pedestal 2 and intermediate the ends of said signs are metallic sleeves 11 to receive then )per end of the tie rod 7. The upperend of the tie rod has a nut 12 to retain said signs or panels upon said tie rod. The sign or panel 9, adjacent to the outer ends thereof, is provided with vertical metallic sleeves 13 for tie rods 14, and the sign or panel 10 has similar tie rods 15.

The upright or pedestal 2 is provided with transverse metallic sleeves 1 6 for bolts 17 and 18., the sleeves 16 being positioned at one side of the metallic sleeve ('1. as best shown in Fig. 2 of the drawing. Connected to the ends of the bolt 18 by nuts 19 are an-. gularly disposed bracesor straps '20 having the upper ends thereof connected to-the lower ends of the tie rods 14, by nuts 21. Connected to the ends of the bolt 17 by nuts 22 are similar braces or straps 23 having the upper ends thereof connected to the lower ends of the tic-rods 15-by nuts 24..

The upper end of; the tie rod 7 is 'conneeted by a brace or strap to the upper end of the tie rod 14. at the rear side of the sign or panel 10. the brace or strap-.25 cooperating with the tie rod and the braces or straps 23 in firmly supporting the sign or panel upon the upper edge of the sign or panel 9. a F By combining metal and concrete I obtain a durable sign post that. )resents a. neat appearance and is susceptible to any desired ornamentation. \Vith the base plate- 1 embedded in the ground, the signpdst can 1a eferred embodiment of the invention. it

is to be understood that the structural elements thereof are susceptible to such varia tions and modifications as fall within the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim is 1. A sign post molded from plastic material and comprising a base plate, an upright arranged upon said base plate, superimposed sign panels mounted upon the'upper end of said upright, a tie rod extending through said sign panels, said upright and said base plate, tie rods arranged ad acent to the ends of said sign panels, angularly disposed braces connecting the lower ends of said tie angularly disposed brace connecting the upper end of one of said tie rods to the upper end of the first mentioned tie rod at the rear side of one of said panels.

. 2. A sign pqst molded from plastic material and including an upright and a base, a

thereto, metallic sleeves arranged in said sign panels, a metallic sleeve arranged longitudinally ofsaid upright, the sleeves of said panels alining with the sleeve of said upright, a tie rod extending through said sleeves for retaining said sign panelsupon said upright, and angularly disposed braces to said upright. rods to the sides of said upright, and an In testirnop; wheregiftl'afiix my signature iii the 'prjesegce; f vvi tnesse s.
