Signs of the times

Every day, we are bombarded with signage in our environment that may or may not be useful to us. Photos depicting a variety of this visual information are interspersed throughout our archive, giving us a glimpse or clue to the past. Whether it is an advertisement, price indicator, or a traffic warning, signs become interesting depictions of what used to be. -Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite
