The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Old Signage

Eldon, Iowa

I like old signage and hope to find more of it while travelling through the South.
Purdin, Missouri

All the better if they date themselves with prices like these,
Coffeyville, Kansas

or praise the latest technological development.
Commerce, Oklahoma


  1. Nice post - I found some old wall advertisements a while back - they were revealed when a building was knocked down.

    I think comments like the one on my blog could get you into trouble!

  2. That is nice,we see them overhere sometimes too at old buildings. Advertisement was quite different at that time, must have been difficult to remove it, so we stiil can see them. Good quality of paint.

  3. Beautiful graphic displays. Also the fading of the colors in time ads to the look of it. Nice captures. Like them

  4. great ones! i hope you find lots more, too!
