For All You Smokers

Every time I drive by this sign, I crack up. King and Tobaccoville are actually two different towns, but it looks like one place.

For a long time Tobacco was king in America. Particularly in the Winston-Salem area of North Carolina and regions of Southwestern Virginia, the crop was grown.

Tobacco has lost its royal standing in America, but the sign still remains.
