Keeping with the circus theme in my previous post, I thought it was high time you also met Curly the Clown. (He too has been a draft post for more than a year.)
This post also doubles as last week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia post.
This sign is just rusting away alongside the Historic National Road (U.S. 40) in Seelyville, Indiana. I pass this iconic piece of Americana everyday on my way to work in Terre Haute.
When searching the Net to find out more about this once animated ice cream sign I found out that he is just like the original Dairy Queen sign. I’m not sure if the ice cream shop years ago in Seelyville purchased Curly the Clown from Dairy Queen, then painted their own business name on the sundae container … or maybe Circus Conies & Cones custom ordered the same sign as Dairy Queen from the same sign company.
Anywho … The original Dairy Queen version also waved and a bulb in the curl of the sundae would light up at night.
