EXCLUSIVE! From the late 1800s through the Great Depression, hobos rode the rails, finding work and moving on. They developed a vocabulary of simple symbols--the Hobo Code--to keep each other safe, carving or chalking them on trees, fence posts and rail cars. A cat meant "Kind-Hearted Woman," likely to give a poor traveler a meal. A house with a bar over the door meant "Well-Guarded House." Zigzag lines meant "Barking Dog," and a circle with arrows through it meant "Hit the Road." Mats are easy-care, durable 100% olefin, made in USA. 27" x 18". Story card included. To clean, hose down.
