Signs, Streets, and Storefronts: A History of Architecture and Graphics along America's Commercial Corridors

By Martin Treu  

Signs, Streets, and Storefronts presents an era by era account of the ever-changing face of Main Street and the strip—from modest colonial inn signs to neon extravaganzas, from crude wood-frame false fronts to slick, streamlined cinemas and shopping centers. A must-read for architects, city planners, town councils, sign designers, concerned citizens and anyone who cares about the appearance and vitality of America’s commercial streets, this heavily illustrated book is equally appealing to armchair historians, retro pop culture buffs, small-town enthusiasts, and lovers of Americana.
