#a125 :: Rusty nails and screws

June 18, 2008

ENLARGEOur neighborhood was built in the 1920s.

I don’t know when they set these telephone poles, but ever since then, people have been tacking notices up on them with whatever fasteners came to hand. The signs, posters and advertisements all came down – by weather or by hand – but the metal stayed put.

I spotted this fantastic cluster of rusted determination while adding my own artifacts to the clutter – staples to hold up a yard-sale sign.

I love the idea that someone put something up with a Philips-head screw.
