Old Signs

In Worthington, Indiana you can still see some of the old signs that were painted on the sides of the brick buildings that make up the downtown.

I love old signs.

They are barely legible and the bright sun didn't help.  I need to go back on a rainy day and take some more pics to see if more words show up. 

This one says 'Meats'.  It's part of a larger sign.

Below the 'Antique Alley' sign, you can barely see another one.   'Green's Fresh Meats and Groceries'.   Meats above that door goes with that sign.

It's clear that the door was added later - it cuts off the bottom part of 'groceries'.  

And in the second window above you can see a coffin standing on end.   Creepy.    The kids check for it every time we drive by.    What will they think when it's missing one day?
