Travelers in the Southern United States will see many barns along the highways with “See Rock City” painted on them. These signs were painted on 900 barns by Clark Byers between 1935 and 1969.
I have seen them all my life. What I never noticed until recently were doghouse billboard signs advertising Rock City. Here are two signs that are on Highway 72 in North Alabama.
This first shows the size of the signs.
The next two images are closer pictures that show the detail and construction better.
I passed these signs just before I drove into the storm in my “Angry Clouds in Alabama” post.
The clouds along Alabama highway 72 looked particularly angry.
The rain dribbled down the window,
car lights poked through the fog,
thank God — we had some rain.

The huge sky above the brush-covered landscape and hills in this image are near the site where the golden spike was driven into the railroad. The spike was placed on May 10, 1869 when the Union and Central Pacific Railroads joined at Promontory Summit, in what then known as Utah Territory.
