This is a sign from the Short Pump Garage.... no idea exactly how old it is..... this old garage sits on the piece of property that has the "Field Days of the Past" event every year! It was fun to go through it, and see all kinds of old stuff, tools, oil cans, drink machines, and yes....signs!

A great BIG thank you to my buddy Linda Houghton for the spotlight!!!!
