"A Sign of the Times"

Even bathed in the harsh light of the South Texas noonday sun, this sign still maintains its integrity as a symbol of quality. It appears to be the only survivor of what used to be commonplace, the main street automobile dealership. In fact, this building no longer houses cars of any era. Rather, it's become a wealth of artifacts, antiques and oddities for shoppers looking to preserve part of our history.

Over the next several weeks, a "mini-series" of posts will be featured highlighting one of the integral parts of all our lives: corporate logos. From modern to old, some recognizable others unknown, these "mini" works of art have all played an integral part in our lives, whether we realize it or not. And I'm looking forward to documenting this rich history of advertising creativity. Stay tuned!
