DOWNLOADABLE TRAIN SIGN GRAPHICS:
Ladies Bangs Curled - Okay, technically, this sign doesn't belong in a train room. Also, I know it's missing an apostrophe, but when I saw
the original as a very small detail in a photograph of Atlantic City
about 1910,I thought it would make a nice project. The original
lettering is hand-painted so I strove to replicate the "feel," not the
sign itself. In the photo all the ladies are wearing white, broadbrimmed
hats, so the only part of their hair you could see was their bangs.
Spending 15 cents to get a quick curl that would serve you just as well
for the day as a "permanent" must have been tempting to some of the
girls. To download the free high-resolution "Ladies Bangs Curled" sign for
