March 5
And here's another marker at the same location. This one reads Yadkin Street:

This was submitted by a mystery reader. (Meaning, identity concealed. Why someone would read this blog is a different mystery!) The thing reads Railroad Street. Where is it located and where did it come from?

Here's a closer view of the background:

Downtown Fuquay?

Doesn’t Knightdale also have a Railroad St?

Looks like something over around Peace College, maybe. Raleigh has a Railroad St over there somewhere, and that looks like the street markers that were used in Raleigh until the 70s. Of course, it could also be in Wake Forest…

I will have to agree that it is probably over by Seaboard Ave. Looks like the Archdale Bldg in the background right above the RR St sign.

Raleigh is correct, but curiously, it’s not in the area of Seaboard Avenue.

Dawson and W. Cabarrus?

Maybe the parking lot behind the Berkley Cafe and the old downtown EMS station?
Marcus - 12/07/11 - 17:58

How about over by the fairgrounds? Kinda looks like one of those Westchase buildings in the background.

looks somewhere close to the convention center…

Ed and Marcus are gettin’ close…
Legeros - 12/07/11 - 22:58

One guess is over there by New Bern Place…..but then another side of me wants to go with the area by West St./ Harrington and W. Martin.

I saw this very marker last night. It is in the parking lot behind the building at 318 S. McDowell Street in Raleigh. There are a dozen or so old concrete street markers back there. I’m currently in the process of trying to get one (legally).
