Grand Forks Retro Signage

Another from my growing collection of retro signs from around Grand Forks. This one is just blocks from the others I posted a earlier this week and from the one last fall.

I've wondered how long these signs have been here? Several parts of GF feel like you've stepped back 30 years or so and remind me of me of my family vacations as a child to the Black Hills or Yellowstone.

I love these signs. They represent local resistance against the ever growing homogeneity of consumer culture, hospitality industries, and the ubiquitous product logo.
