carriage town



One of the murals in Flint Michigan
In the latter half of the 19th century, Flint became a lumber center, and at the turn of the 20th century the revenue and infrastructure from lumbering funded the establishment of the local carriage making industry. As horse-drawn carriages gave way to the automobiles, Flint became a major player in the nascent auto industry. (wikipedia)
Then again, I also like the "Soggy Bottom" sign!

Great mural. I've never been to Flint Michigan but I sure have heard about it over the years.

Nice mural. I'd be afraid to find out the true meaning of Soggy Bottom.

That's a sign and a half!
What a terrific thing to have around in a town. Very artful.
Know who did this?

I don't know who did this, but in researching on the internet I found that there seems to be a few other great murals in Flint that I missed.

Lovely mural. Also love the soggy bottom sign. Thanks for the visit to my rusty old sign.

Wishing you a happy Easter.
