The topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is Signs and I’m starting out with two that caught my eye while we were traveling in Texas, the first in McGovern Centennial Gardens in Houston and the second at the beach in Galveston.
The sign for radio station WBVN in Marion, Illinois; WBVN has a Contemporary Christian Music format and first began broadcasting in 1990.
The Merci Train carriage is on display at the National Railway Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In 1949, France sent 49 of these cars filled with gifts comprising of toys, clothes, ornaments and other items to the US in gratitude for the $40 million in food and supplies sent to France and Italy in 1947.
Three signs at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. Of course, the sign we always want to see is Cubs Win!

This week, Cee has us looking for signs for her Black & White Photo Challenge. Plenty of signs in the photo files but this first image, taken on Sunday, is the most recent. Neidhammer’s in Indianapolis was the venue for our grandson’s wedding celebrations (more on that in a future post.)
Chicago museums provided two images for this challenge; the first at the Adler Planetarium and the second at the Chicago History Museum.
Plenty of signs along the main street on Mackinac Island in Michigan.
A sign with an important message at the American Lung Association Walk at Hamburger University in Oak Brook, Illinois.

You can’t miss this sign! The giant pumpkin atop the sign for Goebbert’s Pumpkin Farm in South Barrington, Illinois can be seen from quite a distance.
Cleaning up the streets in Chicago? At first glance I thought maybe we were being encouraged to get out the polish, but no. It turned out to be a sign advertising Maxwell Street Polish, that delicious grilled sausage covered in grilled onions and mustard served on a bun.
Boxcar Betty, a fictional character whose name was associated with the hobos who rode the rails during the Great Depression, is represented by this sign on an old boxcar at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
A whole collection of signs familiar to railway enthusiasts, displayed at the museum in Green Bay.
