Rue Ernest Bloch

 

Rue Ernest Bloch

Contrasting street signs can be found in the two towns marking the beginning and ending of the life of Ernest Bloch: 1880 to 1959.  Above is the sign in Geneva, Switzerland.  The photo for Agate Beach (Newport), Oregon, thanks to the Newport City Council, is posted at the Photo Resources tab.  That sign now marks a point on Highway 101 in Newport (Agate Beach), Oregon near the home where Ernest Bloch lived from 1941 until his death in 1959. That sign was temporarily removed to make improvements to the Ernest Bloch Memorial Wayside.
