Day 27: the Rest of North Texas

We’re in the home stretch now!  Here are a couple of signs from Canadian, TX.  I especially like the bulb thingie at the top of this signs.  Looks pretty homemade and Tinker Toy-esque:

Same business — this sign is stationed a bit lower:

Maybe this canopy sign pole was meant to simulate an “A” for Amarillo originally?

Way back in the posts from this trip, I posted a couple photos of the Teddy Jack’s Hub City Grill in Lubbock.  Here’s the other location in Amarillo.  Both locations have modern retro signs:

Last subject for this post:  the former Arrow Motel in Amarillo.  The C-152 Lectra has slid down the pole.  Earlier in this trip, I posted a photo to my Flickr stream of a nicely restored example of this sign in Stamford, TX:
