Today I'm joining "Sundays in My City" by sharing some of the wonderful old signs that I've found around and about my town.
Herschleb's was best known for its ice cream. Unfortunately for me, it had gone out of business before I moved back here this past fall.
It was here, scooping out ice cream and other goodies even back in my girlhood days. But that was another day and a totally nother time. Our family simply did not do much eating out, not many families did back then, and so I missed my chance for a Herschleb's Sundae.
I've heard it was quite the place. It looks like a place I would have loved.
Metcalf Lumber - - - it's really the building more than the sign that draws me in. I'm guessing it was a grain elevator or feed store in a previous life.
Good old Pasquale must make a mean pizza and a meaner lasagna
Because it would appear he's been imbibing his own fare.
Well, Mr. Pasquale has to wear his wares for Mr. Portesi is just down the highway giving him a run for his money!!! And Mr. Portesi has the extra advantage of air conditioning - - - is that necessary here on the frozen tundra???
True, the signs at the Sportsmen's Pub & Grill aren't vintage, but they caught my attention anyway.
Bucky Badger is sportin' his "W" jersey and Mr. Packer Backer is proudly wearing his #4 Jersey - - - oh wait, #4 isn't quite so popular 'round these here parts as he USED to be.
If that #4 business is going right over your head just ask your nearest and dearest NFL aficionado.
And THIS sign is quite new, but very important. We wouldn't want anyone to FORGET now, would we???
Those of you who know me well, do not spread ugly rumors that I am a turn coat and have left my Colts Blue Blood back in Indiana for I have not. But my Colts didn't go to the Super Bowl this year and I'm in Rome and the Romans DID so I am allowed to be happy for them.
My blood is still blue.
And sometimes my hair.
What could be better than a soft-serve Dairy Treat AND a rousing round of put-put??? I took this picture a week ago, the licorice snow pile has become much diminished now.
Snow pile or no I have seen quite a few folks lined up to order their cones. I'm sure the place will be hoppin' come an 80 degree day.
Cute little place with a line of cars nearly every time I pass by.
I love the circus tent-esque peak.
So, Fisherhubby and I gave it a try. We got Champ burgers
And onion rings. We'll be going back for more.
I hope you've enjoyed these signs in my city and that you will visit more cities by clicking over to Unknown Mami's place.
