Signs of Lynn – Lynn LUMBER CO.

This Lynn landmark is not shy at all, if signage is any indication. But it’s not just a plain old LUMBER CO., either. I believe they are known for architectural detailing, if not more. Not having been in the market for things of the sort, maybe you can chime in below. Do you have a…

Signs of Lynn – Traditional Breads

  The iconic top of the stack at Traditional Breads is seen by commuters every day, but never like this (unless they’re not watching where they’re going.)   Previous Signs of Lynn Charlie’s Seafood New Angle Glass (With flashing sign picture) Walsh’s Garage Ocean St. Treasures Hines Ben Peralta Shoes Monte’s and You are Here Au…

But once there were no streets.   The Great Sachem Nanapashemet, or…

Signs of Lynn – Ocean St. Treasures

UPDATE 1-10-2015: Sadly, this shop is no more.   This storefront is a relative newcomer, but its business is vintage and its sign has an old charm.     A warm and inviting trio of shops.   Truth in advertising. There’s the ocean on the left.   Previous Signs of Lynn Hines Ben Peralta Shoes…
