Since I would rather spend my small budget on Model railroad stuff I can not pay Photobucket for third party hosting. If anyone else wants to keep this thread going with their own contributions I thank them. For those who missed out on my signs you can find them & more on my railroads facebook page. Please give it a like! Here is the link https://www.facebook.com/MissouriArkansasRailway/

Also always if you can post photos of your projects here showing how you used the signs. I always enjoy when my work is put to use on your layout

Well, not quite as neatly cropped and organzied as Tomkat, but anyway this evening while visiting LILEKS.com (the institute Of Official Cheer). I see it now has a section of early 1920s Billboard reproductions (possibly more to come).
(ETA: A week later, I realized I forgot the link to the Billboard pages)

LILEKS is a somewhat loosely organized (key word: loosely) website with lots of actually rather interesting images (including American Motel (images of motels and hotel exteriors from the 1940s thru 1970s) and Coffee & Chrome (images of resturants and diners, interiors and exteriors, from the 40's thru '70's). There is also lots of other 'ephemeral' items on the site (such as comics, video, ads, "Ghost Signs", Main Street Images, and so on).  OK, the site is a bit wonky and hard to tell what's new and what's stastic, but it can be interesting...

Thank you, Tomkat. I used some of your signs on a couple buildings and will probably keep using them. One question. How do you find time to build the beautiful layout of yours if you're searching for all these signs? Thanks again.
