Am I the only one who tears up at the sight of old roadside signs?

29 08 2008

The above is from a flickr collection of old Polaroids of roadside signs from the 1960s (via Boing Boing, my new favorite website of all time precisely since it posts stuff like ).

A&P was my grocery store growing up in Princeton, New Jersey, but since signs like this were zoned out I feel like its showing me something I missed.

You aren’t the only collector:

I shoot faded signs on the sides of buildings and put them up on my web site, but I’ve never gathered them into a single collection.
