This week Ailsa’s travel blog features Travel Theme: Signs, where she has posted some very unique and interesting pictures and stories. Check out what other bloggers have posted this week.
I do not have too many pictures of signs in my collection, but of the few I have, this sign stood out because it has some history dating back to 1777 and the Revolution. I often walked down this road and when I saw this sign knew why it was called Gun Hill Road. The history of the area prompted me to click the pictures, and as you can see, the advertisers have so ‘wronged’ the significance of this historic road. This prompts me to post this picture for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong.
This sign is at an intersection in the Bronx, one of New York City’s five boroughs. Today, Gun Hill Road is a major thoroughfare with residential apartments, convenience stores, gas stations, banks, and health clinics. The sign gives us the historical significance of Gun Hill Road, as you can see in the picture below.
