Marysville, Kansas


We caught these in another trip out west. 


Along Hwy 36.
A many-layered sign, on the edge of town. We believe there's a Coca-Cola sign in there somewhere.


And not far away, a tobacconist.


There's another sign we just couldn't stop to collect.  But we did find it on Google Street View.

Gone


The removal of the sign for the Imperial Mall, while a shame,
isn't inappropriate. There's really not much of a mall there.

Photo found in the Hastings Tribune. Submitted by Ms. P. Birky.

Gone but not Forgotten


A couple of buildings at 8th and Main were recently disassembled. 
The work revealed, briefly, a sign, seen below...


And just under that roofline, the bottom of lettering.


See what was torn down here, and and in the second entry here.

Also recently lost: this one. It was painted over.

Reader Submissions




The first three are from Denver, CO, courtesy of Ms. D. Ames.


Found in Seward, NE, and shared by Mr. C. Schweer.




And I'm afraid we've forgotten who sent these to us, and where they are from.

Savin' the Day



A lot to appreciate here on Elm, near Findlay Market.
First, the quality of this cigar sign on glass, compared with the last few we saw.


And the artist: none other than Gus Holthaus,
who has a lot more signs on this blog than he's credited for.
