God Love Woody Guthrie (and Handpainted Signs)

As I was walkin’ – I saw a sign there
And that sign said – no tress passin’
But on the other side …. it didn’t say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!
— Woody Guthrie – “This Land Is Your Land”

So I was walkin’ by the old (and vacant) Dunn’s Lumber Yard, along the railroad tracks between Orange Ave. and Magnolia St.  The other side of the “No Tress-passin’ sign didn’t say nothin” so I strolled in and took a few photos (12/21/11).  And on the subject of Woody Guthrie, here are links to the complete lyrics of his signature song
