Signs of the Times (2)
After unearthing vintage Midwestern signs (see earlier blog, “America’s Corn Belt Speaks for Itself“), I found earlier traces of homespun eloquence in the Far West. Most of the photographs below were shot during my journeys by camper across ten States, from California to Colorado, and from Canada to New Mexico. I had been working for Sunset Books to create their best-selling Ghost Towns of the West (1971/1976).
