Day 10 of the 30 Day Challenge
When I go on road trips it seems like most of the country is being corporatized. It seems like whenever I get to a new town, there’s very little to distinguish it from the last town. Sprawl has taken over and it’s the same pattern over and over. Things are done to stay on brand, logos are the same at every outlet in the country, etc. There is no way to see the hand of a human that created something.
Hand done signs like these took time from someone’s day. They had to gather the materials and then concentrate long enough to do a good job and have something presentable in the end. Something to convey information to folks that need it. Sometimes despite the best laid plans, some folks make misnakes. It happens to the best of us. The last sign was in New Albany, Mississippi. An old bridge had been taken down and was being used to support a bandstand thing. The sign was left alone, and was apparently in place for many years that the bridge was part of a small overpass.
