Here's the Gay Dolphin Gift Cove in Myrtle Beach, SC. You used to be able to go up to the top and use it as an observation deck, but it is now off limits for some reason. This place is billed as the largest gift store in SC. 03-07

I bet when this neon fish sign at the Nashville Sporting Goods was newer, it was a sight to see driving down 8th street at night. It has a lot of broken tubing and the finish is quite weathered when this shot was taken. It was built by the Post Sign Co. 06-07

UPDATE 05/08 : Here are additional shots of Walter Nipper's Sporting Goods in Nashville.

Walter Nipper's Sporting Goods
169 Eighth Ave N
Nashville, TN 37203-3791
Phone: (615) 259-4241

 

According to one of the employees at the store, the sign is "at least 69 years old" so that would put it somewhere around 1939. i don't know too much about football but if you notice the football helmet on the bottom left it looks about 30's or 40's and the basketball has big fat stitching like footballs do so that's another possible clue of the 30's.
