    I don't know why I cared, but I googled spudnuts and got this, which I found interesting: https://archive.sltrib.com/article.p...10&itype=CMSID

    Time for a couple more signs.

    The first shot, track 5, was from 1968 or there about and the center, Finster’s paradise garden, was from the mid 80’s. The pink Motel was shot around 2006-2008.

    The Indian Chief image dates to the mid 60's in Cherokee NC.

    Been there many times. They used to be one of my clients. Certainly a good place to see artifacts from old Appalachia.

    If you take a look at post 1 & 2 the concrete cross in the ground and the one standing in the second post we’re put there by the same guy that did the sign in your post. I think the name was Mays. He lived in a house that was shaped like across and went around the country spreading the message on those signs. I know where three remain. He also took 1/2 pint whiskey bottles and put little crosses inside of them much like as hip in a bottle. He handed those out to people. The one of the cross laying in the yard is on the property if either his son or nephew. Can’t remember what he said when I met him. Mays lived in Tazwell / New Tazwell TN.

    Good shot!

    Thanks for the additional info on Mays Don. He must have been an "interesting" person. I photographed Norris extensively as part of a project I did on the uses of Eminent Domain. It has an interesting history as a company town for the TVA and the dams that were constructed in the area. Shortly before it was developed the federal government hired Lewis Hine to document the people living in the area—many of his photos look like they were taken in the 1700s if photography had existed then.
