Installed on a building down on South Main is an old sign from a previous tenant: The Frank James Hotel. If you've ever taken the time to really look at this sign you'll see it's got a lot going on. The first thing you may notice is it's overall antique appearance which is striking in and of itself. The woman's head on the top is an unusual feature but upon closer inspection you will see the face of a man in her black hair. Then the colors come into play, indeed those flowers seem to be popping out at you. The flowers are "linked" together by chains and on the chains are various words from none other than Gandhi. Some of the phrases are: love and nonviolence, passive resistance, never own defeat, it is weakness that breeds fear, what is faith if it is not translated into action, fear kills the soul, etc.
Currently, Murray Riss Photography is at this address and you can just see the word "studio" on the end edge of the sign. I looked for an artist name on the sign but did not see one. It would be hard to spot since it looks like some original work was painted over though in such a way that it bleeds through the newer work. Love this sign.
