15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Ghost Signs

If you ever travel through a small town in the South there's a high possibility you'll see one of these awesome old Coca Cola signs. They are such a great piece of historical Americana from before internet adverts weren't around and most advertising was done through hand painted murals or billboards. When I travel through towns that still have these awesome murals still around I get a sense of nostalgia for a simpler time, a time when these small towns were in their hay days and thriving. It just amazes me that these signs have weathered time and still get to be enjoyed by a new generation.
