Summer Trip – Day 8 / Eastern & Central Oregon

The day started in Pendleton, OR — so, here are a couple of other signs from there:

This sign —

… would have advertised Elgin Watches for a jewelry store originally like this one that I shot in Fort Madison, Iowa.  The customer could buy just the bottom panels with the clock and diamond — or the whole shebang with the blade sign:

From Baker City — a nice plastic Elks Lodge sign.  These are rarer than the neon variety:

Some more signs from Baker City:

The bottom panels of this Coca-Cola sign are gone and those little plastic diamonds are starting to fall down inside:

A better example of those plastic diamonds — my photo from Livingston, Montana:

As you can see, the paint on the sunny side of the sign is nearly gone.  This side gives a better idea of the original Art Deco appearance:

A few more signs from Burns:

These arrow clocks were mass-produced in green and yellow.  Maybe there were other colors but I haven’t seen any others.  The examples that remain usually point downward rather than sideways like this one:

Sorry about that damned tree:

Running out of daylight in Chemult:

Hardly any sun left in nearby Beaver Marsh but I’ll include this anyway.

Cute little A-frame cabins behind that office building and chain link:

One more shot for this post  — the Ross Ragland Theatre in Klamath Falls which was the final stop for the day:

Two more posts to go from this trip — coming up in a few hours,
