ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " K "


Here we are at ABC Wednesday again. Today's letter is K.
K is for KEEP OUT. These warning signs were at the Medical Museum in Auburn, CA.
Modern medicine has certainly modified the need for KEEP OUT signs.
Be sure to go to Mrs. Nesbitts link to see the other contributions for the letter K.
To see the detail better just click on the photo.

Great 'K' kontribution! You should have saved this pic for Quarantine! I bet Q will be a tougher letter than K!

Anna said...

Very nice! I hope you are well Sue!

Great collection of Keep Outs... I remember just a few times my parents talking about people being quaratined.. I don't know if they really were or they just thought they should be. Thanks for visiting mine.. Cathy

Great choice 'Keep Out' for 'K'. It could mean so many different things to so many people.

Thank you for your visit.

Very unique. I found the letter K quite difficult and this is an interesting choice that you have presented.

Jay said...

Oh, I love them! How fascinating!

I need one to pin on me that says 'If you're infected with something, STAY AWAY!!'

LOL!

What a great choice! I'd never have thought of it!

That's what I enjoy so much about ABC Wednesday--so many interesting and clever choices!

mrsnesbitt said...

Wow! Great detail in those signs...like a bit too much information for the terrified! LOL Would keep me out anyway!

antigoni said...

Very nice post for letter "K".

The Holleys said...

I'll keep out! Lol! Nice post!

Clever choice for letter K.
When I was a little girl (back in the dark ages) we had one of those signs on our front door.
That was when my sisters and I had whooping cough.

CG said...

very original and interesting K :)

Aileni said...

That's a clever twist on 'K'.

lavenderlady said...

You know, the medical museum was one place I did not get to when I lived in California. I bet it was pretty cool.

Deslilas said...

Keep out was used too to prevent people from being injured by the Underground wagon doors. At least I believe if I'm not certain.

Very interesting post !

starnitesky said...

Great signs, fascinating!

Kim said...

A very unique K, I like it :) I like the angle of the shot too.

Gemma said...

Pretty scary signs!!!
:-)

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

interesting!

AVCR8TEUR said...

These signs are better than just the words "Keep Out" or "Danger".

Faye Pekas said...

I would gladly keep out of all of those places. Nice k words :)

Reva said...

Love the keep out signs. Wish I had some of them to put on my front door to keep pesky sales people away. My dog always barks (of course) and get's all excited, thinking she's getting company. In fact I think I want a quarantine sign to put clear out by my mailbox. Yes... that ought to do it..

Tash said...

great pictures today & on many recent posts. I really enjoy the variety of subjects you cover

AphotoAday said...

Now, those are MY type of signs...
Would keep everybody at-bay for sure...

Shammickite said...

I'll definitely "keep out" in order to avoid those nasty diseases!

Laurie said...

OH I am getting old. I actually remember quarantine signs when I was a kid. I also remember when Dr.'s made house calls.

Neva said...

What a great "K"...I did not have time to d a "D this week....first time in a long time! Hopefully, I will be organized for "L"!!!

Rambling Woods said...

What a scary time for parents....
