Hobo Signs & Symbols

T-Shirt from National Railroad Museum – Milwaukee

Like so many others, I found this T-shirt in the back of my closet the other day. I always wanted to post about it, so here it is, even if it is 4 years late. 🤪

I think one of my winter projects will be to make digital emoticons of the symbols for use on my blogs and for anyone else who might want them. For some reason I have been drawn to symbols lately. I even did some prep work for a new blog but decided there probably wasn’t much interest in that narrow topic.

Another possibility is to kind of borrow these symbols and add some of my own. In my studies signs and symbols have been around for most of humanity. Maybe the cave dwelling were the start of that. Sounds like an interesting project for the coming winter project.
