The Signs of Lancaster County


Ever feel like you are bombarded with signs or advertising?  Click on a website and there’s a video about THE secret formula for losing weight, drive down the road and there’s a sign flashing your speed for the entire world to see.  Gosh, you can’t even look up the weather without being forced to sit through a car commercial.
While the rest of the world goes high tech crazy with QR codes, banners, pop-ups, or sites asking you to like, tell a friend, click through or submit information, parts of Lancaster County are still decidedly low tech.  Somehow I find that refreshing and don't mind this sort of advertising at all!

These are some of my favorite signs on the back roads around The Artist’s Inn.




 

 

 
And this is my all-time favorite. I'm sure that lunch special really pulls in the crowd!

Jan, you could do a whole sign series on eggs! My favorite is the egg sign on Reidenbach Rd. I think of it in terms of how Bruce would draw 'pastured eggs'.

I know - I thought the same thing. Think I'll discuss that with him!
