Jack's Outback Rendezvous #24 Jack's Outback Rendezvous #24

Sign of the Time This sign came out of Vermont. Jack explains, “This is just a good old homemade roadside farm sign. The farmer just took a sheet of metal from the barn or somewhere and used an old paintbrush (you can see where the hairs of the brush were sticking) to make this advertisement for his produce.” Checking with some old area farmers, 20 cents a dozen for corn goes back to the 1920’s.
