We have received photographs from Georgia muralist Sonny Franks of a painted wall sign he recently finished in Pontiac, Illinois. Two newspaper (Pontiac) accounts (Gwinnett) detail the origins of the sign and the dedication to Sonny's father.
I wanted to share both the original 1941 Canadian cardboard poster and some of the photos Sonny sent us showing the sign progress.
