Eps 72 Local Business Signs Collection

Businesses, Signs

You know by now that our casual historian of HdG has a few, well, interesting collections. We’re not quite sure just what he’ll do if this particular collection grows!!! But he’s definitely having fun with it.

C&B Sandwich Shop

At this point in time, I believe this C&B Sandwich Shop sign is the oldest in his collection. The shop was located at 117 N. Washington Street.

Backfin Blues Creole de Graw

Do you remember when it was the Crazy Swede? Or maybe Ken’s Steak & Rib House? Or how about the Chesapeake House? And it goes back to its earliest days of The Home Restaurant. But for now, our casual historian of HdG has this sign from when it was The Crazy Swede. This location is at 400 N. Union. CLICK HERE for more info.

The Crazy Swede Restaurant is at 400 N. Union where Backfin Blues Creole de Graw is now.

The Duck Stops Here

This was located at 465 Franklin Street. Jimmie McMillan sold anything ducks and decoys related. This is also the location where our casual historian opened his first shop.

Grace Town Inn

This sign is a little different. It is actually the stained glass window from the front door of the Grace Town Inn – at 321 N. Adams. Click on the link to learn more about the building that has since been demolished.

Now, we don’t quite know what our casual historian of HdG will do if he gets many of these larger signs. But you can be certain that he’ll want it if you have one to share!

Remember, don’t throw the Havre de Grace ‘stuff’ out when you’re cleaning out a home, settling an estate, or just ‘downsizing,’ without checking in with George. Don’t give him cause to cry!!!

Our ‘casual historian’ is always waiting for your stories and any memorabilia you may want to share.
