I is for In Search of the Letter I

My theme for #23 Round of ABC Wednesday:
Signs & Such of San Benito County, California

Yesterday afternoon, at Bertuccio's, a produce market in Hollister, I remembered I had yet to photograph a sign or such that began with the letter I. Twice, I combed that store in search of the letter I.  Amazingly, no vegetable, fruit, or food product began with I.

Aha! The vintage weigh scale on display had something: IN TRADE. The complete phrase was NOT LEGAL FOR USE IN TRADE. I have no idea what that means.

  1. I think it means that the scale is only to get an idea of how much something weighs. They can't guarantee that the scale is very accurate. But that's a guess.

    1. If I'm recalling correctly, the scale had a 1904 date on it. It surprises me that non-useful weight scales might've been produced then.

  2. Hmm no idea what that means but I like your inventive find for the letter I

    1. Grazie, Birgit. Fortunately for me, the young woman working at the market thought I was more amusing than crazy.

  3. Creative post and photo for I ~

    Happy Day to you,

  4. 1904 ... I bet it's just about as accurate now as it was then. :)

  5. I guess that the forst commentor is right, sounds logical ;-)

    Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-Wednes-day / -week

    1. I think Liz is on the right track, too, about the weight scale.

    1. You got me wondering. It's not easy finding iceberg these days. Romaine yes. Spring greens, yes. Iceberg, where the heck is it?

  7. Great find from your hunt for I :)
    Happy ABCW!
