Vintage Lawn Sign

Vintage Lawn Sign
This vintage lawn sign highlights an ideal of decades past that still rings true for many today. The 1940’s and 1950’s placed an emphasis on returning to normal following the Second World War. In a time when the focus was on the home and the family, appearances of things such as homes and lawns became a priority for many housewives. This sign asks people to “Please keep off the grass” because “I want to be a lawn”, giving an impression of people’s eagerness for the “perfect” lawn.
