This marquee for the Tucson Seat Cover Co. is rather interesting when you stare at the close-up. Not sure why, but it is.

Looking to grab some cash for cans? Well, this character looks pretty happy as he walks with one arm towards cashing out a box of cans. This sign calls out the business Can Depot.

 

 

Dog Racing (Sign removed)

This large marquee for the Dog Racing track in Phoenix is a can't miss sight off the road. Yes, it is this way to the greyhounds.

 

UPDATE 01/07 : Recently, the greyhound park was sold to the city of Phoenix, for the use of Sky Harbor Airport. The park will be open for about another 5 years, then torn down to make way to parking and extended airport services. The sign was replaced by a really ugly plain sign and all the character was lost. The park is still packing them in though. i do not know the fate of the sign, or if it even it still exists. Light rail construction might have caused the sign to come down. Many thanks to Adam Falk for update. 01-07
