single frame: The Emmanuel Baptist Church Drug Company

Scenes from the American Sign Museum

I was trying to shoot just the church sign and didn’t really see the humorous placement of the sign behind it until I got the negatives back from the processor.

    That is a good one.
    Of course after one’s been an office holding member of my local church for ten years; YOU’D NEED prescription drugs.

    Growing up I’d always heard the Baptists had the best drugs. ;) I love the droll story behind your image too, Jim. Isn’t it funny the things we sometimes notice only after the fact? Perhaps you “saw” this subconsciously, and that’s why you snapped the shot.

      And all this time I thought the Baptists’ claim to fame was being first to the restaurants after Sunday services!
