Hobo Signs

The Secret Language of Hobos

 

Beginning in the 1880's up until World War II, hoboes placed markings on fences, posts, sidewalks, buildings, trestles, bridge abutments, and railroad line side equipment to aid them and others of their kind in finding help or steering clear of trouble.

 

Learn about the signs, and what they mean. Then all you need is to keep a piece of chalk in your pocket and you can be ready to alert others too!
