The case of the missing service station
When I first saw this rusty old sign, on an old alignment, on the western side of Sideling Hill, in Washington County, Maryland, I couldn't figure out what it was. I later suspected that it might be an early speed warning sign. However, after considerable research as well as assistance from the members of the American Road Magazine forums, the conclusion that it was a sign for a Cities Service station - the text of the sign read "Cities Service Ahead".
