A photographic tour through SPAMTown USA

I often chide my old stomping grounds based on the absurd news that comes from there. With stories like a boy getting stuck inside a claw machine game and more prostitution (it seems) that you could shake a proverbial stick at, the "finer" things sometimes get overlooked. Here are just a handful of which I culled from the vastness that is Flickr.

Buffy the Cow

Iconic McDonald's sign

Old school southern Minnesota TV Guide (circa 1956)

Cultural center of my old hometown

The old school A&W Drive-In in northwest Austin, MN

The former Johnny's restaurant on N. Main St. in Austin making SPAM a constant presence

A fantastic (mostly) neon sign collection, many of which originate from Austin, MN
