Commemorative plaques mark the location of significant events or illuminate the underlying meaning of sites and buildings, while memorials keep the memory of notable figures and community members alive in the places and communities which they helped shape. Keeping social memory alive contributes to community cohesion and pride, and the use of memorials and historical signage to maintain social memory can operate at different scales.
Infrastructural signage helps contribute to the story behind cities and municipalities where structures such as bridges or important buildings are adorned with signage that is unified in both an authoritative voice and a cohesive style. Such signs even shape our memories, particularly how we interact with our landscapes but also how we interpret history and deal with authority. Historical memory is increasingly at the forefront of government and public consciousness as we come to better understand how monuments, signage and memorials shape the way we cultivate memories.
