MoCo’s Vintage Mid-Century Road Signs


During the post World War II boom, Montgomery County grew by leaps and bounds. The new, post war exuberance was reflected in not only the modern architecture sprouting up but by the cool roadside signs as well. The Montgomery County Planning Department’s Montgomery Modern initiative has nice post highlighting some of the remaining signs, including the Weller’s sign in Silver Spring (above), and others that, unfortunately, have been lost. ┬áTake a roadside tour right from your desk or phone.

Just a note: I am roaming around my native New York, so check out my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook feeds for mid-century modern and modern inspiration from the Big Apple.
