SIGNS OF AMERICANA
These photographs are a 20 year work in progress of vintage as well as modern signs. Some are iconic, some are not, but all tell a story and are sometimes the very heart and soul of the American small town or big city. All the photographs are taken using manual film cameras, available lights and settings.

Photo is part of the "AMERICANA" Collection. As seen in the 2020: Retrospective
"These images are from a collection from the Americana Portfolio and capture our motel, hotel and business signs of year's past. In those early days, intricate signage was one of the very few ways to market to the public the excitement, attraction and feel-good factor of your product, service or facilities. If you look carefully at the detail on these older signs, one would take the view that more expense and thought went into the sign's design than it did into the design or the "luxurious amenities" afforded for the development.
