POTD: Montana Elev’Co.

Montana Elev’Co.
Wilsall, Montana

The side of a rather massive grain elevator seems like an odd place to need to resort to creative abbreviation. Looks to me like there would have been plenty of room to spell out the whole name using the same size “font” as the existing letters if only they had arranged it like this:

MONTANA
ELEVATOR
COMPANY

Maybe they were just trying to save paint.
