POtW: South & Summit

My friend Randy and I tried to steal this sign. We worked hard on it but ultimately failed. I like these old signs in Baldwin because they are unique unlike the regular white on green that are replacing them.

There are very few of the white JCC signs left in Baldwin and I'm hoping I can get pictures of all of them before they are removed. By my count there are seven or eight of them left. I also wish that someone would be able to tell me who the "JCC" is that printed on the shield after the street name.

Update (3/27/2024): A few years ago, after some searching and sleuthing, I discovered what the JCC stands for. It stands for the United States Junior Chamber, or Jaycees. They are an organization for young people to become civically involved in their community. Their logo even has the shield seen on the sign.
