W/NW Signage

Some vintage era signage persists, typically on roads that were once the main byways of the country, now replaced by interstate highways.

I'm not sure how "vintage" this is, but this establishment has been around for quite awhile, and is much loved by travelers up and down Hwy. 395 in CA and NV:

Non-vintage, but still signage.

I remember that Suckling Pigs one ...

Here's a couple from that roll of Sensia which I had cross-processed as C41.



And a very famous iconic sign ...
