Day 23: Arkansas (Part 2)

This day I covered ground between Harrison and Russellville.  I’ve got a nice big batch of sign photos for you.  Let’s start with a couple of Ozark-themed signs from Eureka Springs:

If you’re having trouble making out the plastic characters on the far left, it shows a woman carrying a chicken and the hillbilly guy either passed out or snoozing on the ground.  I shot the building sign in 2010 which shows the people more clearly:

This razorback hog sign is in Alma.  The University of Arkansas’ mascot is extremely popular all over the state.

This little strip mall sign is in Van Buren:

These last three are from Fort Smith:

This one appears to be modern:

The Burns Carousel of Flowers store is gone but this sign remains.  Only a tiny speck of neon left.  I’m hoping the rust keeps the collectors at bay:

Back next weekend with another batch from the “Natural State.”

Happy trails,
dj & the dogs
