Chris Mackowski’s Spotsylvania post from last week brought up a few questions as to what should be interpreted and how should it be interpreted. As I was walking to work this morning, I noticed a clump of interpretive signs in Pittsburgh’s Strip District.
The one that caught my attention is below. It is a sign interpreting a parking lot. Why is a parking lot important? Is it more important than a battlefield? Obviously the group who installed the sign thought it worth the $2,500-$3,000 to install the sign. I believe this is a great example of what Chris was getting at with his post: what is important and should be interpreted.
