    A few more shots that signs play an important role in. The photo of Mrs Byrd standing in front of her menu board was shot around 2005. My wife and I had breakfast there every Friday morning. We were able to have a substantial meal for a total of $6. The diner was built by Mrs Byrd and her husband in 1947. Shortly after I made the photo she sold the diner. I sat vacant crumbling into the earth until a month ago when it was demolished. The diner sat at the intersection of the Dixie and Lee highways, Dixie Lee Junction as it is known.

    Signs of faith were once very common in Appalachia where I live but in recent years have become very scarce.

    Glad they bring back good memories.

    Your sign is one you don’t see everyday, at least around here.

    Thinking of Lady Bird and her push to remove highway signs.

    When driving in corn country the many tiny serial signs that told a story mile after mile were wonderful.

    When I was young in the 50’s & 60’s the entertainment along the state highways, before interstates, was Burma Shave signs.

    Hamilton, Montana, Sept 2016.

    A peek at Google Street View just now shows that as of Oct 2018, the building had been knocked down and the property fenced off.

    I'm sure there'll be more. Great thread. Walker Evans would love it.
