Home sweet 304!

Home sweet 304!
West Virginians are proud of 304 and they proclaim the number everyplace as a shorthand expression of identity. I'm able to picture paintmen in cherrypickers, lifted to the tops of pump canopies statewide.

The upside-down apostrophe in "FERGUSON,S TIRE'S" is a regional variant on ¡-! ¿-? practices, which originally came up here from Mexico.

In the Guyandotte neighborhood of Huntington, West Virginia, on January 2nd, 2011, at the northwest corner of Bridge Street (West Virginia Route 2) and Richmond Street.
