Website Navigation Tips
- Use the Prev and Next buttons on the pages to move to the next page in a sequence. Their behavior is based on the context.
- Move the cursor over the Gray Buttons (Main, 1, 2, etc.) above an image, when present, for alternate views.
- The UNITED STATES MAP is an easy way to navigate to ghost signs.
- Please read the DETAILED DESCRIPTION of how I shoot signs or you may be surprised when you see them 'in the wild' with all of the clutter in front of them.

24 July 2012
- Changes were made to the state index pages, allowing both internal and external links to 'jump' to the cities directly - e.g. Butte, Montana.
- The pages for "Best Signs" and "Final Signs" now have dividers based on the states where the signs are located - e.g. best signs in Missouri.
- The Product Index pages have links to the more common products - e.g. Coca Cola, Quaker Oats, and Henry George Cigar.
- Some reassignments were made to product categories for individual signs.
- These web pages are generated using C++ code which I wrote. It would be impossible to maintain all of the hyperlinks unless I used a coding method.
- I have tested these pages on Safari, Opera, and Firefox. I don't have a PC to test Explorer, but I have run page checking through the W3C site software.
