Some signs from Harlan County KY

This has to be the crappiest representation of an alligator/crocodile I’ve ever seen…and it’s on a Japanese shipping container!

These all were in the long-closed commissary of a coal company.  These were stuck on an old industrial refrigerator.

The calendar notes the probable last year this commissary was in operation.  The company appears to still be in business, just down from the extremely refurbished Harlan train station.

In Kingsport TN, the space next to Wallace News is being remodeled and this sign is temporarily visible.  A view of Kingsport in 1928 seems to show the building that Wallace News now occupies (the other space, on the intersection, is empty) as standing alone on the intersection of Broad and Market Streets.  By 1958, this empty space was the Betty Gay store.  Wallace News came into being in 1941.
