women/girls

pairI thought these two signs looked interesting side by side. The WOMEN sign was taken at a rest stop somewhere in West Virginia and looks like it’s back lit in the evenings. I love the stretched letters and how tightly they are kerned together. An indication of how tight the bathroom stalls are maybe? The GIRLS sign is located above a door next to a playground on the lower west side of Manhattan. Much looser kerning, well for the first 3 letters anyway. Looks like the R is handing the L some toilet paper under the door but she’s getting it from the S. What caught my eye was how deep these letters are cut into the concrete. Here’s a (somewhat blurry) close up:
