Classic Old Signs


I love old signs....I think they are a huge part of "Real America". As my husband and I drive around town making our deliveries I am always on the look out for neat signs, classic signs. What I don't understand is I'm finding that a lot of very old businesses are replacing there classic pieces of Americana for modern day signage. I find this to be very disappointing. Sometimes I'll think about an old sign and go to take a piture..and it's gone, replaced by something with zero character. This is very sad to me. I just don't get why someone would get rid of something so classic as an original old sign. I guess it's just the world we live in. I, myself, will always treasure these old classics and will capture them with my camera, every chance I get!
