Signs of Our Times

Genre: Pop Culture, Nonfiction; Author: Emily Gwathmey, John Margolies; Publisher: Abbeville Press

Once upon a time, roadside America was festooned with flying red horses, neon flamingos, drive-through doughnuts, eat-in coffee pots, and outsize statuary of folk such as Paul Bunyan, Humpty Dumpty, and Uncle Sam.

Too bad, but here in Signs of Our Time in full color are the artifacts of yesteryear assembled and lovingly described by two witty appreciators of vernacular style. A+
