As I’ve pointed out in past blog entries, Detroit is an interesting place full of interesting signs. Many are clean, simple hand painted versions with colorful messages and images found nailed to a utility pole or an abandoned building. Others are crudely hand-made types constructed from cast-off scrap wood, Plexiglas and other found materials. Most of the eye-catching ones I see at the grass-root level feature a simple message or a rough rendering of a particular product being promoted. It isn’t unusual for some to have misspelled words or painted, dippy letters that make them almost impossible to read. The quirky signs can be found throughout this large city in just about any neighborhood or along major commercial roads that spread across the city.
Below are a few more of the amusing signs of Detroit that I’ve spotted on my bicycle rides in the city.
