Signs of Butte

Butte, Montana; who knew? A boom town constructed in an era of building craftsmanship is a beautiful thing. Brick, terracotta, and tile everywhere. And signs. Lots of signs.

Here are a few of the old and not-so-old ones I saw around the Uptown area.

Layers of ghost signs create a beautiful collage.

Shot through an ugly late 20th-century parking garage.

A classic.

Two for one.

Beautiful. The lower line says "Cures the Blues."

This is a more recent sign for a store with a name that could be bad for business.

Mixed messages in an antiques-and-collectibles store.
