Baker Park Carillon in the Early Morning

The carillon in Baker Park just after sunrise. Looks like molten gold.

It's a Sign of Art

It all started with Marshall Etchison's Bookstore sign. For years I've admired this sign and finally took a photo of it.  It's beautiful and looks hand painted.  If you live in Frederick you probably have walked around downtown dozens or hundreds of times without noticing the signs hanging in front of the local businesses. Some of these advertisements are really works of art! Here is a selection of downtown business signs. Click on any image for a larger view.
