Another wonderful sign by the Flashtric Sign Company here in Chicago is Harvey Trailer. Despite a little surface rust & lack of neon tubing this bright colored sign still stands out on Dixie Highway. The lower sign reads, " Parking With Each Sale". 06-07

In late 2005 DeYoung & Sons closed up shop and moved the DeYoung & Sons Furniture business over the border into Indiana. Sadly the sign didn't make the move. Except for a little paint fade the sign was in great shape. 06-07

Port Washington, WI

Check out this classic 50's bullnose sign for Bernie's Meats in the heart of the downtown district of Port Washington, WI. A few letters were broken at time time this shot was taken. This is the first time I've seen a bullnose sign in V- format. 06-07
