Flickr Find | Fort Worth Signs

Flickr Find is a weekly column of interesting things found on the amazing and inspiring photo sharing website Flickr.

Texas is hugely intriguing to me. The state is such a diverse and unique place with a distinctly American personality. My recent fixation with No Country for Old Men got me searching for old hotel signs on Flickr which ultimately lead me to this terrific photoset of old Fort Worth signs.

This is actually the photo and sign that inspired New York Magazine’s latest “Cheap Eats” cover.

    Texas is a strange place. Went to a wedding a few years ago in Temple, TX near Austin. It was a lot of fun. See if you can find a photo of a place called Denim & Diamonds in Temple.

    Great post! Any town offering “coldass beer” and “cut rate liquors” is alright in my book

    Wow…I lived in Fort Worth off-and-on for 10 years and I recognize almost all of the signs in the group. Thank you for passing along. Fort Worth’s a great town; a bizarre mix of a healthy and progressive arts community on top of a bedrock of small-town hicks. Throw in a few thousand rich college kids and you’re just about there. Much more character than Dallas and twice as fun. Thanks again.

    Love this!! And of course I’m especially digging all the love for Texas.

    Michael – if you’ve never been, you need to book a trip to Marfa. You would absolutely adore that town! Tiny, but packs a major punch.

    Hey, thanks for posting my photos on your site. Glad y’all liked’em. I sure enjoyed taking the photos. I love to take photos of signs. I don’t know why but I just do. Go to my website to see my latest photos. I’ll take photos of just about anything.
