The Mission Shopping Center marquee in Kansas City used
to stand tall back in the 1980's, but was torn down to make room for an
enclosed mall. Once upon a time, huge marquees such as this one used to
advertise the neighborhood shopping center, but in this day and age, plastic
signs have become all the rage.

Sometimes shopping center signs represent the best throwback reminders
to a previous era. In this case, the Country Club Center in Springfield,
MO is a fine example of what the local shopping center signs used to look
like before the onslaught of back-lit plastic boxes.

Sometimes it seems like if there's a major city or town, there's a Plaza
Shopping Center and some form of a shopping center sign.

Well, Lancaster and Canton, Ohio don't disappoint! These Plaza marquees
show much character and are very different from each other.

The marquee for the Beechwold Plaza in Columbus, OH
is one of the "clock" types that for some reason never seem
to work. This one is no exception.

The Airway Centre is a rather eye-catching sign out in St. Louis county. If this marquee looks familiar, it's because it was once the main sign for the Airway Drive-in Theatre in Saint Ann. This drive-in lasted for over 30 years and closed down sometime in the 80's. 10-05
