Standard Road Signs diagram
- 1926 (circa)
- Diagram of the designs for Florida's standardized road signs, dating to about 1926.

The diamond design for marking Florida's state highways remained in use until the system was overhauled in 1945. The other sign shapes have remained generally the same since 1926. This diagram was included as an illustration on page 94 of Baynard Kendrick, "Florida Trails to Turnpikes, 1914-1964" (Gainesville: University Press of Florida, 1964).
