The Alphabet Man

Little is known about The Alphabet Man, but he is seen here proudly posing with one of his rustic twig alphabets somewhere in Southern Kentucky in the 1940s. Perhaps his name was just Mr. X. Below is another original twig work he assembled and mounted on a painted white board. All letters are original except the "H" which is a contemporary replacement. The board is 46 x 16".
