Oh, how times and styles change!
This one is on display at Heritage Canyon, Fulton Illinois (USA), something of a real-life “museum” featuring the reproduction of a whole town, circa 1800’s typical of Illinois in that period of time. This however, is the Real Thing not a reproduction, once used to bring in business at a hardware store in Fulton. A far cry from commercial signs we see today! Not only in the artwork but the verse. Like most signage then, it was probably created by the business owner and I’m sure he was proud of the result.Probably worked ok, as well!
