Stinker Station Signs

Stinker Stations were (and still are) a chain of gas stations in Idaho. Their corporate symbol was a skunk. During the 1950s they adopted an oddball advertising campaign which involved posting yellow signs with strange messages along the side of roads. Most of the signs were removed after the passage of the Highway Beautification Act in 1965.

Reminds me of the Burma Shave signs along the road side. They were out there from 1925 to 1963 from Wikipedia page. "Your shaving brush / Has had its day / So why not / Shave the modern way / With / Burma-Shave"

Reminds me a bit of the signs for South of the Border along I-95 in the Carolinas. I haven’t been down that way in many years, so I don’t know if they’re still there.
