Of course I took pictures of advertisements on my recent trip to New Orleans! Unfortunately, most billboards look like any other billboards, but I found some nuggets.
Here are some old-type ones in the town of Algiers. I guess they don’t have enough people interested in the boards. I’m kind of glad. It gave the area some character.
And here are old-old-old billboards that I bought tiny versions of and have hung them on my office wall. You can see that they didn’t really stick to the 7 words or less with one primary message. Although I’m not sure we always pay attention to that rule now.
This one is a little more stream-lined.
And I loved this one. This was one of the ads that truly represented New Orleans attitude and Louisiana pride.
