Let’s make the Tourist signs for Florida

In 1974, the Turks invaded Cypress and the island has been split in two every since.   One Greek beach town, Varosha, ended up in Turkish hands and was abandon.  Some clever entrepreneur saw a profit in telescope viewing.   Perhaps we should immediately patent the concept of a mobile tourist viewing platforms that can be moved north or to the last dry elevations on I-95, I-75 and the Turnpike as the sea rises.

1924 Dixie Highway signs are prototype.
