I was going through some pictures, and came upon one I'd forgotten about. It was taken in Cape Girardeau during my quick dash there and back a year and a half ago........
It's the only time I've ever seen European-style 7s on a road sign! I looked very closely to see if somebody might've added 'em after the fact. Nope, they look as if Missouri's DOT installed them like this.
What's more, there were two other 177 shields along this street which also had crossed-7 numerals.
Well, I found it neat. But that's to be expected, right? :-)
Ciao for niao.
