My neighbors were throwing this sign away years ago when I saw it lying next to their trash can. I walked up and asked if I could have it. I could not believe they were tossing out this classic piece of Americana!
It is a double-sided wooden sign that USED to have L-brackets on either side at the bottom to hold it up in front of a business. It is huge and I am excited to hang this up in my home.
It is 23" by 32" and is in great shape considering it's age.
I was curious. I can remember seeing these growing up as a kid (I'm 30), and they are usually associated with neighborhood shops or food carts or bakeries. I have not been able to find anything like this anywhere on the internet. Everything I see is TIN or PORCELAIN.
Would anyone have any information on this sign or know of anywhere, other than this site, where I could find some information.
