Nunda Couple Donate Crossing Sign

During the week of the fair, Jim and Nancy Shoemaker, of Nunda, donated a rare, cast iron crossing sign to the society.

They believe that the sign was originally from Friendship.  Research tells us that it was a road crossing sign that was painted white with black paint on the raised area on the front of the sign.  These signs predate the current yellow RxR signs that are now in use.  It is interesting that
it has "PS&N" as part of the sign on the back.

The society greatly appreciates the donation.  Plans are under way for restoring the sign to its original colors for eventual displaying in the freight room at the museum in Angelica.
