Warning Hippies Have Been Spotted In This Area Round Wooden SignThe carved wooden sign, however traces its roots to the age of sailing ships. Just as important as the sculpted figurine projecting from the ship’s prow, was the ‘quarterboard’ bearing the name of the vessel. Although it was considered bad luck to have a woman on board ship, clippers often bore a female name, and were always referred to as ‘she’.
Warning Hippies Have Been Spotted In This Area Round Wooden SignIn this age before radio and GPS navigation systems, shipwrecks were so common off the coast of New England, that a law was passed requiring that every ship quarterboard have the name carved into it. That way, the ship could be identified when the wreckage (including the quarterboard) washed ashore.From these grim beginnings, the great industry of the carved sign was born. Little did it matter when ships became metal and steam-powered, and later diesel. Nor did it stop the craftsmen when the quarterboard law passed into oblivion. Carved wooden signs were now a feature of the storefront or home, rather than a ship’s bow. They could be found in inland towns where the folk had never seen a gull or heard the roar of the surf. The carved sign was here to stay.
