Old School American Signage

It's great to see that some people are enthusiasts of old school design. Marc Shur has a great collection of vintage signage in his flickrstream, enough pieces to make any signage fan go crazy.

These are some good examples of how good signage design was back then. I mean, there got be very few people who wouldn't enjoy having one of these hanging by their business, right? Even though I'm Brazilian, I get very nostalgic about these. Maybe because these became somewhat of a universal reminder of the 40's, 50's, immortalized by cinema. But that's my guess. Anyways, these are only a few of Marc Shur's collection. For the whole deal, check out his flickrstream! I hope you enjoy these. ;)
