Dairy Queen with Eskimo girl sign. Dairy Queen Sign

Usually I wouldn't send you a picture of a Dairy Queen, but I just love the two-sided Eskimo girl sign on this one. I've only seen one other Dairy Queen that looks like this, and on that one, the sign had been PAINTED OVER. I first saw this way back about 1980 or so, and I have to admit that one of the first things I was concerned about when hurricane Hugo trounced Charlotte in 1989 was whether the sign at the DQ had survived. The owner must really appreciate the sign as well, because when I drove by the other day, he had literally just finished repainting it.
