Well, It's been snowing since 8 PM last night and it still has not shown any signs of
stopping. I haven't gone out to measure it yet but the TV weatherman says it is in excess of 16
inches. Spring must be right around the corner.

I have gathered some materials and loads of photos and picked the subject of my next
structure model. I am going to change my usual scale, O scale (1/48) instead of my usual 1/24.
I am also going to make a whole lot of changes from the prototype (the fun of scratchbuilding).
More on that later.

One of my daughters-in-law was traveling and stopped overnight in Clarksville, TN. From her
hotel window she could see a structure that had an old sign that covered one end of the
structure. She took some photos because she thought I might like to model that building.

Hi Bob,
I'm going to sit beside Bill and enjoy some of his popcorn, if He'll let me.
Really looking forward to another one of your builds.

Bob, it's good to see you have something in the works. Your first post is sort of a tease, like a trailer for a film.

Bill, is the popcorn buttered? If not I'll bring popcorn and share. Greg and Dave, you can have some of mine if you want.

Mike

Thanks guys, I really appreciate all of your comments. As many of you know, my wife has many
health issues and as her caretaker it does require my time which I give freely. This model
is not going to be much but hopefully it will get me back to work.

This is one of the photos from my daughter-in-law and I was able to use Google to get in there
and take some better shots. This is an old structure that was converted to a law office and
they were wonderful enough to leave that painted wall intact.

Since I do not know what the original structure looked like I will have to make many guesses and
I will also make many changes for my own likes.





Well, it's not really laying on it's side!!

Bob

Nice looking picture I'm sure it will be a fun building it.

Bob, it looks like J.F. Couts' Son(s) believed in diversifying.

Bruce, back in the day, it was quite common for a furniture store owner to also work as a funeral director/undertaker in the same store.

I like the juxtaposition of the 2 signs.
Uneeda bite the biscuit, before you can see the undertaker.

You can also just make out a former ghost sign below the Uneeda Biscuit sign.
I can't quite make out what it was though, I'm getting a kink in my neck looking at it sideways.

Bob, looks like the writings on the wall for this project!

Michael, thanks for sharing your popcorn, can you pass me that bowl!

Greg, did you intend ghost sign as a pun with the funeral parlor connection? If not, I'll take it!

I fiddled a little with the photo using GIMP.
I think the ghost sign is another, older Uneeda Biscuit sign that was painted over. It looks like the layer under "Rain or Shine Just as Fine" says "Uneeda Biscuit" in almost the same size lettering as the newer top layer. And then over on the left side it has an older NATIONAL beneath the top Uneeda., something I can't make out beneath the 5 cents (what ever happened to the 'cents' symbol on the keyboard?), and then COMPANY beneath the A PACKAGE

I have several photos of old Uneeda Biscuit sign and they have different slogans, so the rest of the old sign might say something else. It might be what's left of the trademark in the rounded orangish square above the window.

On a computer keyboard, the only way to get a "cents" symbol is with an ASCII alternate character code. Specifically, hold the alt key and tap the numbers 155 on your keypad.
