Day or night your visit to Memphis is not complete without an amble down historic Beale Street.  Here are some snapshots from our all too short visit to this famous thoroughfare to inspire you:

Blues Hall and Juke Joint – you just don’t hear those phrases much anymore, do you? Same with Drinks to Go-!

You never know what you’re going to come upon when you go down roads you’ve never been on before, which is the fun of a road trip. Case in point is this great vintage sign combo for Fornaro’s Liqour Store on Route 49 in Pennsville, NJ. This is the type of sight that makes you (me)  pull the car over, find a place to park and snap a photo.

Look at that free standing sign with the curvy arrow and quarter rainbow. Wait! it’s a double arrow with the lottery sign- I think that’s good luck!

Check out that cheery red orange color against the blue sky, highlighting that Fancy F and stylishly forward leaning apostrophe S.  How about the way that elegantly narrow L in Liquors rises up between the R and the N as if to reach for the star(s)- literally!

The store wasn’t open that early morning when I was driving by, or else I’d have gone in to buy something and to let them know the fact that they had that cool signage is what made me come in to make my purchase. Maybe if we all do that to places that keep their original signage and look they will think twice in replacing it with a boring plastic sign. Crossed fingers!

What a whirlwind of a week it has been so far- with trips to Sellersville, PA, New York City and on Friday heading back up to Beantown to visit the Retro Roadfamily. I don’t have time at the moment to do justice to the fun we had candlepin bowling at the Wakefield Bowladrome in Wakefield MA (owned by the same family since 1957, and on the site of an older bowling alley that burned down) but wanted to share a few pictures with you, including the COOLEST RESTROOM SIGNS EVER!
