Here's a faded out roadside sign for the Lowry Farm in Pittsfield, IL. It appears that the horse on the sign used to be neon lit and animated to boot. Not sure if the sign ever lights up these days or if there are plans to restore the sign. 04-06

 

 

 

J.H. Glaser

This is of the J. H. Glaser & Son Marine Supply Company, on Natural Bridge Road in St. Louis, Missouri. The business looks like it has been closed for a while now. Natural Bridge Road used to be a major route into the City of St. Louis from the suburbs in St. Louis County. The neighborhoods and small municipalities along this stretch of road are now run down and mostly abandoned. Most people avoid this area is possible taking the major highways downtown instead. There was certainly never any body of water nearby to warrant having a marine supply store in this part of town. A lack of well off middle class commuters (potential customers) passing by each day must have finally done them in. 12-06

 

 

Kmart

Here's a classic shot of a real roadside gem, located in Commerce, Michigan. However in this case, the gem is the 1964 Bonneville, posing under this Kmart sign in Commerce. Look for this roadside treasure (the Bonneville) to be in an upcoming Will Ferrell movie soon. 02-07
