existing "Westgate Antiques" sign but a little smaller. These two
signs will flank the existing "R. E. Morrison" sign. The total sign
area is about 2%' over maximum allowable size, and Ms. Morrison
thought she would probably remove the "R. E."lettering, which would
bring total area within code. Mr. Wilkenfeld thought that making
the new sign exactly the same dimensions as the antiques sign would
bring it into better balance.
