I got a chuckle out of these signs this morning. As far as you know, are they legit or meant to be funny?
We have something like that here in Indiana. I wonder if the names are supposed to be funny, too.
Ed and Ma, these signs are the original names of the stores in these very buildings in Juneous, SD. The buildings have been moved a few miles to Prairie Village. The Coal company name has appeared in Ripley's Believe It, Or Not column years ago. The Gross family still maintains the General Store. No humor was intended, but they are still funny names.
Reminds me of the legal team at Car Talk: Dewey, Cheetham & Howe
Yes, that occurred to me too. I listen to Car Talk if I'm not off working somewhere.
Nice stores, lovely benches!
I think they had a good sense of humour in pioneer days!
Names can cause a problem. My maiden name was Rude. I love the buildings, so trim and neat!
Gross grocery store - love it.
Great names and it's great that the buildings were preserved.
Prairie Village has a town "Main Street" with historical buildings from the area. There must be a dozen 19th Century town buildings saved for the future. It is a kind of living museum that comes alive during their Old Thrashers Festival every August.
Way to make me smile! Great captures! Really like that screen door on the first building. ~Lindy
These two buildings look like cousins.
Too funny! Click and Clack on NPR always said that their attorneys were Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe!
You found a couple of classics.
I bet the Gross family got a little tired of the jokes.That first building has an interesting placement of the door and window, too.
Simple stores with unimaginative names (at the time, anyway!)
