Signs are made to catch your eye, to draw you in to a business. In colonial times, when many people were not able to read, it was important that these signs conveyed the name and type of business visually.
Walking around Colonial Williamsburg, in Virginia, you notice that a lot of effort has been placed in recreating the types of signs that would have lined the streets four-hundred years ago. Here are some of my favorites.
