Signs of Lynn – Au Nid du Doré

  I caught a fish sign <–this big–> somewhere in Lynn, but I’ll let you tell me. I believe Au Nid du Doré means Golden Nest, which explains why it’s a green glowing fish. I think it looks angry.     Previous Signs of Lynn Ghost of the Empire John’s Upholstering Mino’s Capitol Diner Brickyard…
