THE DAILY POST WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SIGNS
For this challenge, share an image of a sign: it can be a sign near your home — a comforting sight after a long journey — a sign that doubles as art, or other types of signs that hold meaning for you. For more information click here!
This is a photo taken at the Maplewood Station of the local Metrolink System and the sign is on the bridge that carries the trains across Manchester Road. As strange as it seems, City of Maplewood ends just west of the bridge. So anyone driving into the City Of Manchester will be able the read the name correctly in their rearview mirror. The sign is actually a work of art … part of the transit system program of displaying a work of art in each of the stations in the metropolitan area. Here’s a close-up of the sign.
The artist created his letters from the remains of an early 20th Century home that had once stood near the sight of the station. And if you’re wondering, the sign on the other side of the bridge reads MAPLEWOOD.
Manchester Road was part of the Original Route 66 going through Saint Louis.
