Old Signs

I was out one morning a while back when this sign caught my eye in the early morning sunlight.

At one time all of our main street businesses had big signs like this one. Slowly but surely they’ve almost all dissapeard from the landscape.

Personally I like seeing the old signs, it’s one of the first things to catch my eye in old photographs.

What’s your take? Know of any cool ones around town?

Also worth noting, Glatter’s is a long time business, they’ve been around since the late 1920’s.
