Population Sign - Burlington, Ontario, Canada


Well, technically this picture wasn't taken in Burlington. You have to step outside the city to take a picture of the population sign right? (At least that's how I think it works, I really don't know where the city limits are). Anyway, I think this picture was taken in Milton, north of Burlington. Normally a sign like this would just be blue and white like the top part and wouldn't have the city name written a second time with a bunch of fancy swoopty things coming off it, but Burlington wanted to be special so I guess we've made that our logo. Anyway we have 151 thousand Burlingtonians (give or take a dozen), how many Glasgowians are there? You're it, Carol!

Jen you don't half know how to stump a girl! *lol* I'm almost certain Glasgow doesn't have a population sign but I'll do my research and see what I come up with.

You don't have a population sign? Burlington has three or four of them.

And wait a minute, if you don't have a sign, how do you know when you're actually in Glasgow and not some other city?

We have a welcome to Glasgow sign with some 2014 Commonwealth Games advertisement (which today we won the bid to host!!) But no mention of the population. I will improvise. *grin*

So take a picture of the Welcome to Glasgow sign. We have to get 25 more posts in by the end of the month if we want to keep up with June. lol

Yes, do the "welcome to" sign. I'm so glad you guys are still doing this. It's a fabulous idea and more interesting than you probably realize.

Here are some things I'd like to see: a typical old lady, a candy store, a businessman, a telephone pole, a commemorative historic plaque, an airport sign, a grocery cart, and a government form.
