Banff Avenue Street Sign Picture

I just spent the weekend in Banff and had an incredible time. I took many photos, however, it was overcast the majority of the weekend. I was hoping to get a close-up picture of one of the Banff Avenue Street Signs with the mountain in the background. Does anyone know of where I can get one, or if anyone traveling soon can take one? Any advice or assistance would be very much appreciated.

Just to be clear -- you want a photo of a street sign that says Banff Avenue, and you want a mountain in the background ... any particular one. Sulphur? Tunnel? Rundle? Cascade?

Yes exactly. Likely Cascade if possible to find a good angle, but Rundle would be great too. It's such a beautiful area!

The intent was to take it while there and frame it. I have similar photos from other vacations (e.g. Bourbon Street in New Orleans) that I want to hang it next to, but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate for a great photo. Certainly looking forward to adding it the collection and would be happy to send a print to the photographer!

Except that while the standard tourist postcard shot of Banff Avenue with Cascade in the background abounds on google, there don't seem to be any with the close-up of the Banff Avenue street sign with the mountain backdrop that the OP is looking for.

But still, don't you just love this postcard from Peel's Prairie Provinces?

I think that's the Balkan in the right foreground, with the Mt Royal Hotel in the right background, opposite the King Edward Hotel.
