The Sign Project: That Hotdog Makes a Statement

submitted by Huzzaz on 09/02/19 1

Meet Dave Hebb, a self-identified commercial archaeologist who has been on an epic quest since 2012 to find all of Greater Boston’s Signtronix signs. Signtronix, a California-based sign manufacturer, caters to small businesses across the United States but as Boston continues to expand and build, these signs are increasingly being abandoned. Follow Dave as he meets the owners of these signs and learns the history of not just the buildings and businesses, but the histories of the people who still own these signs. At Atlas Obscura, our mission is to inspire wonder and curiosity about the incredible world we all share.
