Sign up to quirky talk; NORTH EAST IN BRIEF.

IT'S a sign of the times that the once-familiar enamel advertisements that used to adorn every high street shop front are now only seen at Beamish Museum.

But enamel street signs are being brought back to our attention in a talk being given by Andrew Morley on Monday.

Signs of Change: The Lost World of Enamel Advertising will take place at 6.30pm at Fenham Library, Newcastle, and is designed to appeal to anyone interested in the changing nature of the high street, advertising, social history or just beautiful old things.

Those interested can book a place by calling City Library on 0191 277 4100 or visiting www.newcastle.gov.uk/libraryevents
