American Railway Express... It’s a sign… 

Literally, it is a sign. A few weekends ago, we headed north to visit our eldest daughter who is in college in Michigan. On a pleasant early fall day, we walked the streets of Ypsilanti. With a mix of college town shops and local flair, we explored the town. One shop that we were dying to explore was Materials Unlimited. This is a mix of antique shop with a heavy stock of architectural rescue. Three stories of  treasures were waiting to be discovered.

In one of the rooms, Jenni looked up and quickly pointed out a find. Hanging on the wall was a 5' black-painted wood sign with American Railway Express printed in gold lettering.  It was circa 1920, prior to the American Railway Express becoming the Railway Express Agency (REA).

Wow, this was right up my alley...
