Monday: Looks so much bigger close up

Wednesday: It doesn't fit on the new structure.

Thursday: Red and white

Friday: Seen by thousands

For decades, the red and white, lighted Orofino sign hung on the bridge across the Clearwater River welcoming to residents and visitors. When the new bridge across the river was built the design was very different and the sign ended up in city storage. It is now on the patio behind the Clearwater Historical Museum where it looks much bigger close up than it did hanging on the overhead supports of the bridge. Only one of the signs is left. The second was not in good enough shape to keep.
