Does anyone know what happened to the signs? Here’s an update from the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), August 10, 1922, page 1:
Signs Should Be Up.
The business men of Skidmore purchased 72 signs last spring to be put up along the roads indicating the direction of Skidmore and the number of miles. Some of them have been put up, but there are still some back of Manchester & Dodds hardware store that should be put up at once. If you haven’t done your share in putting up YOUR signs, see to it — now. These signs are too good to be left in an alley to rust and where very few people see them. “Put ’em up.”
