Driving west on Patrick this afternoon I just happened to look up to see this painted sign.  I have never noticed it before and it almost certainly cannot be seen when the nearby tree has any foliage.  I think the word in the lower right hand corner is “service”, but I cannot make out anything else.

When I was a kid the first floor of this building was the Blue Ridge News Agency.

Does anyone else know anything about this sign?

  1. My grandkids and I drove past and we read it says Battery at top and Exide (pretty sure) on the angle in the middle

  2. To learn more about signs in Frederick visit the City’s page https://www.cityoffrederick.com/DocumentCenter/Home/View/511
