Dr. Pepper: Good for Life

"Texas Plaza"
Decatur, Texas.
Recognizing a need for services for travelers, E. F. Boydston began in 1927 to develop his "Texas Plaza." He built a wooden shed and gas station, and offered camping spaces with fire pits for overnight stays. By 1930 Boydston had added three wooden cabins with garages. Eight years later he covered the exterior of all the buildings with chunks of petrified wood. More cabins with garages were added in 1935.

I don't think anything speaks more of iconic American than the soda sign, whether it be Coca Cola or Dr. Pepper, or another brand. It is safe to say, I am sure, that any old sign brings to our mind a nostalgic memory of iconic America. Nevertheless, iconic American is not limited to signs. We all have out own definitions of what is "iconic American." Here in this gallery, I present my own interpretation of iconic America in image.
