This bit of whimsy was spotted in the charming seaport town of Gloucester, Massachusetts. The viewer is one of those classic binocular sight-seeing devices manufactured by the Tower Optical Company, in business for 77 years. You know you're at a great old-time tourist place when you see one of those babies and I really love how they haven't been modernized much over the years. The smile comes courtesy of an anonymous, yet brilliant artist. Picasso himself couldn't have done a better job. Funny how one curved line of graffiti can really make your day.
This blog is devoted to old fashioned American roadside attractions... the wonderfully big, bizarre, crazy, wacky, quirky, weird, funny, unique and mundane sites you see travelling cross-country by car in the USA, where getting there really is all the fun!
