The Old Market, Omaha, Nebraska. It's a former warehouse district that's been gentrified. It's been a cool hangout for years, and it wasn't until I hit it on this trip that I knew how cool.
Because of the signs. I knew I'd find a couple, but, jeez. I felt like a big game hunter who stumbled upon a nature preserve.
My host for the day, D.L. Hudson, was kind enough to not only drive me to the Old Market, but was also patient as I got giddy over faded paint on old brick.
And soon, he was pointing out signs, like this Schlitz "doormat", comparing it to a Toynbee Tile.
Many more Omaha signs coming...
