Formulanone's Flickr Fotomat
« on: October 28, 2011, 10:57:39 AM »

Here's my Flickr site > http://www.flickr.com/photos/formulanone/albums

The old website is long-gone. I'll clean up those links one day.

Most are marked Creative Commons, and only require attribution...feel free to use them where and how you like. Basically, they're all up for grabs, as long as you say I took the picture. You can also let me know where they're being used, but that's not required.

Also, there's not a lot of rhyme or reason - travel is effectively random - so try the Flickr search to find what you need.

Check your link for Ohio. It's the same as California's.

Thanks!

Link now fixed for Ohio...they're all now divided into separate states.

A few sign pics from North Central Florida in late-January and early-February:

Old US 301 with a CR 200A shield...The "Old" tab is unusual, as is the dual US and CR shields on the same post.


A "modern" S-225 shield with a County sticker. Posted in 1978.


A Keys S-225 shield with a County sticker. Posted in 1975.


Oddball "End Of" designation inside the CR 227 pentagon.


Another "modern" SR shield, now downgraded to CR 18. Sign mounted in 1978.


Keys shield, dating from 1973. Missed getting its "county" stickers...off the beaten path!


Old C-229 shield (then patched) from 1978. Arrow below has reflective sheeting, is from 1993, for comparison.


Normal CR 229 shield, with the label scars of "225-A" behind it...


A weather-beaten S-229A Keys shield; patched, but Florida is barely visible. On private property, didn't inspect sign further.


This one was from 1973, arrow below from 1969. Originally, this shield had a date of 1966 on it, probably re-painted.


An "alligator-skinned" old Keys shield, dated from 1969...


...same route, other direction.


"Floating" SR 230 sign.


Button copy, typically only found on Farmer's Market signs in Florida.


Old buttoned porcelain railroad crossing sign, with a piece of rail as the sign post.
Alongside someone's home, but owner was nice enough and not at all bothered by me taking photos of it!

Snapped a pic of this one 01-18-10, it is date stamped 7-12-66.

Nice pictures you've got there my friend! Particularly the last sunset one. Very nice.

Though I do have one question about the county route shields. Why are the numerals so small?

Sorry, missed this one. Thought that CR 233 was a bit of an oddity with the shrunken numbers.

Was in Cleveland for work; it rained a fair bit, and my camera was acting up, expensively. :(





It's like kids fighting over what part of the room is theirs...too much of this silliness in the area:

I did not know they were posting secondaries as late as 1978 in Florida.  good to know!  the only "modern" style secondary shield I've seen was an April '77.  I believe I've seen a '76 dated keys shield.

I had thought the Great Downgrading to county routes had taken place in Oct '77?

A couple from West Virginia, also some Kentucky and Ohio...in the Tri-States Area. Sorry for some of the varying photo quality, used an old 2MP camera from 2002 in some of these shots:

interesting.  a shield with a black button copy border.  California generally uses white.  they must've gotten the wrong batch out of AGA and didn't notice.

Recently came back from Seattle, uploaded these two to Wikimedia Commons, since they didn't seem to have any of "that US 99 overhead BGS in Seattle". Didn't get many photos, as the weather wasn't my thing. After two other abortive attempts to go downtown, 4:15am was about the only time it didn't rain, and I had a 6:00am flight that morning.

Also found a state-named shield along the way...

On that note, it’s time to fly home alongside a shiny wing and a vapor trail.

I love that water tower. It's a 15 minute walk from my house.

It's also distinctive enough to be seen from an airplane window, when landing into CVG from the south.

Definitely. If you don't know the story of "Florence Y'all", here's one from our local paper:

Thanks!

I have a bunch of ground-level I-595/SR 84 construction shots from October 2011 that I've never gone through. Wish I had the time to post them, although I'm not sure how relevant they are anymore. Last I traveled on 595 a month ago, it was still a mess.
