Signs, Signs, Carneal ArtsRevive


 One of Selma's arts organizations is housed in a former auto service building,
 hence the Auto Service sign. This is actually the back of the sign,
 the front of which is below. Carneal Auto Service opened in the 1940s,
 and prior to that, the 1920's building was Selma Electric Battery Co. 

This weekend, the Carneal ArtsRevive will host the grand opening
 of the Spider Martin Retrospective:  Exploring the Role of Photojournalism
 in Influencing History. Martin was renowned for his photography of events
 during the Civil Rights Movement. The exhibition will be open free
 to the public through March 28.

Sounds so interesting! I'm sure it will draw a large crowd. Your photo with the row of light fixtures in the background is wonderful.

A contrast in signs, but the old one still seems to fit in.

That is neat that they kept the old sign and replicated it for the new business. There was a show on in Toronto a few months back on a similar theme. I found it fascinating how photojournalism had changed over the years from the days of illustrations to photos.
