Scars/signs of the old Cold War are still around us, even though a new millenial generation — one born after the fall of the Soviet Union — is just now reaching the upper end of their teenage years. It’s a simple as a yellow and black sign, posting the classification “fallout shelter” on the sides of buildings. Basically, I’m going to start collecting photographs of these signs, partly because I highly doubt new structures will go up with them, now. As for the photo on the left of this post, that building has already met the wrecking ball in Asbury Park. It was the Ambassador Hotel. Slate.com, on another note, has a history of Cold War Civil Defense here.
