What do you suppose the "hoop" is on the roof between the "Welcome" and "Cabins" signs. Frame for a missing round sign/gas pump globe? Directional antenna? Or what?
Sure does look like a directional loop antenna. One reference I found said they were used 1915-1930 to replace long wire aerials so the era appears to be correct.
Great photo Jay thanks for posting. I was reading their sign trying to see what their web site was, but could not make it out.
its a metal frame for a gas globe, linzes broken out. charley
Is that a globe on the other end of the "Little Red Hen" sign?
The globe at the end looks like; shell, Indian chief or a turkey. Can't quite make it out even when enlarged.
yes it is a globe,i think shell. charley
