Other Roadside Signage Northern California

 

Harris Funeral Home

The Harris Funeral Home also features neon lettering, not to mention "funeral insurance." Neon marquees for funeral parlors and churches were quite prevalent back in the day, but are more of a rare sight these days.

The Orchard Supply Hardware store sign still points the way in off the main drag.

'Rug Cleaning by Rug Men'? What an odd slogan. Oh well, it has worked for 97 years, so what do I know? I'm picturing the Rug Men as this sort of cartoonish rolled up carpet with hands and feet. I'm sure the actual Rug Men would be disappointing in comparison. This sign is at Sacramento Rug Works.

This vintage Greyhound Bus terminal in Redding still features the greyhound icon on top of its marquee.

 

 

Walnut Trailer Villa (Removed)

This trailer park or 'villa' still has a nice boomerang sign out front. The Walnut Trailer Villa seems to have fallen on hard times, though.

This Shoe Repair sign is all but a sign from the old Main Street America days.

 

 

Children's Hospital

This old neon sign points the way to the Children's Hospital in Oakland, CA.

 

 

 

 

 

W.F. Gromley & Sons

Not used to having funeral chapel stuff here at Roadside Peek, but this sign was too good to miss. Looks like the parts of the marquee itself may have contained working neon back in the day. Not sure if this sign is just for the parking area at W.F. Gormley & Sons Funeral Chapel.
