I was riding my bicycle by the cemetery dump about 10 years ago, so I stopped to look around. I saw this lawn sign laying amongst the trash. It was rusty, muddy, but cool. Best of all, free. A little sand blasting and paint, and it was good as new. It is 17 inches by 8 inches, and has 4 prongs on the base to stick into ground. The back is about 9 inches high and 6 inches high in the front.

    How neat. I can't imagine how many other items have been disgarded over the years because they needed a little TLC. Good save. I may look this cemetery up. I live in Grove City, PA, about 35 minutes away. It is a small world.

    Thanks Love.anything.old. We are practically neighbors. If you like old things, I'll post a photo of my Mother in law. I live 10 minutes from Sharpsville, and a short bicycle path starts by the cemetery and runs down to the Shenango Dam. There is also another great cemetery close by in Sharon called Oakwood. You can even stop and look at my hoard. ''Vontrike''

    I don't know, maybe your Mother-in-law and I went to school together!! Back then they used daguerreotypes. Seriously though, cemeteries really are very interesting and I'll keep these in mind the next time I am over in the Valley. L.a.o.
