This excellent sign, which weighs a ton, has not lost its marbles. Got it at the Alameda Antique show. Very early and eerie - especially in the dark, when a ray of light hits it a certain way, you can just imagine what it might have been like to be a hobo or a brakeman headed home from your shift, walking around the yard.

Hard to get the night shot which captures the cat eye marbles (original glass) in action; I did my best.

    Ive got one just like it, yours looks like it doesnt have a backer on it. The backer is whats keeping me from lossing the cats-eyes that have come loose.
