Your & CLT’s Identity: Past & Present

(From The 09/26/2020 Show) Have you ever thought about the sights and sounds of where you live becoming a part of you and your identity? It is something important to realize, and 8th-generation-Charlottean, Christopher S. Lawing, thinks it’s important too. As the founder and director of the Charlotte Signs Project (@cltsignsproject & he keeps up with the (literal and figurative) signs of the past, the present, and sometimes the future. These things are all celebrated in his book, available at Jesse Brown’s, Charlotte: The Signs of the Times. Today, he gives an update on the iconic Park Road Shopping Center sign, two “Shotgun Houses” on 7th Street and their history, as well as some resounding good news (and bad news!) updates on some of Charlotte’s famed and iconic restaurants and their future.
