A 78-Year-Old Catastrophe

Adam of Universal Hub noticed an old sign in Dedham, Massachusetts, that includes the phrase "in early year's."

The spacing on this sign also seems a bit off, and the first part isn't really a sentence, yet it has a period at the end.

See Adam's original posting on about this poorly punctuated sign here.

I don't see much wrong with it. I mean yea, it isn't a sentence, but we see this kind of thing all the time when paragraphs of information have an introductory factoid. Sure it's more of a bullet point than a sentence, but it's understood all the same.

True. It's not that bad, but if we want to be really picky...
