Ortega's Shoes in Douglas, AZ still features its old marquee advertising its shoes. This is the type of stores and signs that used to be quite prevalent back in the day when folks would go to the central district for shopping needs.

I spoke with the owner and operator of the Wall Art Gallery and he told me that Beall's Plumbing still owns the building and still operates the plumbing business out of the back part of the building.

According to the gallery owner, he likes the historical plumbing sign and plans to leave it up. The only change he said he would like to make to the sign if the city and Beall's will allow, is to change the word "plumbing" to art gallery or something to reflect the new business in the front half of the building.
