Frostee Freeze

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This tasty Frostee Freeze sign is in New Tazewell TN.
Interesting story, which I obtained from my friendly Wikipedia: When the Southern Railroad clanked its way through East Tennessee, it bypassed Tazewell – about 6 miles west.  A depot was built there and ambitious people with an eye on the railroad dollars hied themselves to New Tazewell (it wasn’t called that then, but, in 1954 it officially took the moniker) to live (mostly) long and prosper.
On Hwy. 33, right at the boundary line between Tazewell and New Tazewell there’s a sign that has “Welcome to New Tazewell” on one side and “Welcome to Tazewell” on the other.
It’s burb to burb, bud, and no suburbs in sight.
