DX Sign Outlives Company and Calamities


Another day and another DX sighting in the Midwest. This vintage sign is located in the northeastern Missouri town of Novinger, a very small, former coal mining community.  DX was a petroleum company whose gas stations dotted the American midwest. Last year a F2 tornado hit this area, the local river flooded and in September a fire on main street fire destroyed five businesses but none of these calamities damaged the DX sign. Is that an indicator that DX is here to stay? Know that.
