Surely, this sign was inspired by 7-Eleven signs:

The new owner was installing and getting ready to paint this Coca-Cola polar bear in front of his soon-to-open take-out daiquiri place.  He said the bear appeared in a Super Bowl commercial:

I’m assuming those spikes had ballies or something interesting originally:

I’m so glad that all those sign-makers used navy porcelain instead of black.  You want the type to show up well, so, they could just as well have used black:

A very pretty and unusual Masonic sign:

The building has a nice scalloped canopy, too:

And lastly, a detail from a Hungry Farmer Bar-B-Q sign:

That’s it for today!  More coming soon.
Happy 4th of July from dj & the dogs
