Uses for those old signs.


Recommended Posts

Thank you for the information. I wasn't thinking that old (for whatever reason) so now I'll see it differently from now on. It's about 3 blocks from where I live. The building probably won't last much longer.

They used old license plates and auto signs to patch the holes that rats chewed into the old grain bins and hay storage of my carriage house. It's not uncommon around here in dairy country to see old signs patching the outsides of farm outbuildings.

Just as a POI, the most stolen sign reported in the US in the 70's was an Interstate that ran from Indianapolis to near Lansing Mi. I-69.

I used an old NJ license plate and bent it about 45 degrees by using a drawer edge to make up for a slightly rusted area between the floor and toe-board on the passenger side of my first '49 Pontiac convertible. As a high school senior with three newspaper routes and a weekend dance band to supply funding, It was an affordable and solid fix with some roofing tar and sheetmetal screws.

That font for the Dodge lettering was used circa 1933-1938, so I would assume the sign is from the same time frame.

 

Oh my ... it's kinda like calculating an actual age of dinosaur, hah. Sometimes signs can mean way more than we usually think. I've read couple of articles, one of the best is here ( weblink: https://www.sunsigns.org/angel-number-11-meaning/ ), where numerology shows how we can configure our lives and make decision based on numbers.

Are you referring to the Sinclair Dinosaua ?

 

Which in turn refers to the strangest legal decision in history. 1927 so fits right in here.
