There is a vacant building in downtown Lexington, SC that used to be the home of the local newspaper, The Dispatch News. My husband the architect was really interested in this building because of how old it is. It has such great character and would make a great office building. I was interested in it for the sign. There’s something about wooden signs mounted to brick that get me. The font is traditional for a newspaper and the kerning could use some work but I think it adds to the charm.
When we were in downtown Cleveland a few weeks ago, we came across this gem. Those letters are wood! And the sign is mounted to brick! Value Furniture Co. looks like it has seen better days but once again, I just love what the weather has done to the sign. I think it’s beautiful. And as an added bonus, check out FRANKEL.
letters carved in stone + wooden letters = love.
