This sign advertising Merita Bread has been above the Merita bakery in Orlando, FL since probably when this section of I-4 opened in the early 1960's. "Merita" is in red neon three stripes wide inside the metal letters. The "Bread" is yellow plastic lettering put up within the last decade by the new owners, Interstate brands. The clock has been giving time and temperature since the late 1970's, at least.

"You'll love it at Levitz". Yes, there are Levitz Furniture stores in Florida. Sporting immense signage, Levitz is still a member of our current roadside eye-catchers. For how long? That's the question.

 

UPDATE : One moment it's up, the next it's gone. Levitz is now a U-Haul Rental. Update courtesy Andy Callahan.
