The Writing on the Wall

Taiwan TW-488695 received 03-26-2012

Sent by: Yihsin
From: Taichung, Taiwan
ID number: TW-488695
Notes: The first thing I thought of when I saw these old advertising signs is "Is this the Taiwanese version of Cracker Barrel?"  The card doesn't actually tell me where these signs are specifically.  As you can see at the bottom, it does say that they are in Lukang Township in Changhua County.  Lukang Township is located on the west coast of Taiwan, and it was an important deerskin trading post during the Dutch Colonial Period.  It has a population of over 86,000, and in 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Board of Taiwan.  That's probably due to the Cracker Barrel.  ;)
