A Sign Unto You

My company still builds signs like these. There is little demand. When we do have projects like this they are by far the most enjoyable and always get the most press upon installation.

There is a great sign museum in Tulsa as well and you can rent it for receptions and parties: http://www.stokelyeventcenter.com/

An endangered species

For decades, we've torn down these extraordinary signs with no thought of salvage. There ought to be a sign museum. It won't be long before all the old signs are gone.

Sign of Greatness

Really great example of Art Deco here
