After spending the past few days exploring the countryside of Western New York, Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, I decided that this week's Throwback Thursday would pay homage to an August 2004 trip that I made to the Keystone State. I had taken PA 28 on my way northeast from Pittsburgh and encountered a bunch of old signage along the way from Pittsburgh to Kittanning. The aging, button copy signs have since been replaced. This particular example is on PA 28 northbound at the Blawnox exit, near Aspinwall and Blawnox. It even looks like the Exit 9 may have been tacked on the sign as an afterthought.
