Other Roadside Signage Northern California

 

Pollardville (Demolished)

Why does the name Pollardville bring up images of a chicken? Ah, because there's one on the sign here at the Chicken Kitchen Family Restaurant.

Unfortunately, Pollardville closed down in 2007 and was demolished in April 2010. See more of Stockton's former Highway 99 roadside attraction here at Roadside Peek's Lost Treasures feature on the Pollardville Ghost Town and Restaurant. 04-10

At the left is a good lookin' vintage sign for Arc Tel Welding in Fairfield, CA. Looks like a giant arrow that got rooted into the ground.

This shoe sign is representative of the type of roadside advertisement that used to be quite prevalent along the roadside.

 

 

 

 


Milk Farm

The Milk Farm in Dixon went out of business in 1984 and was demolished about two years ago in early 2000. All that remains are the tall sign and the smaller sign that used to sit on top of the building. It's now sitting out in a pasture across the road.

The tall sign is supposedly getting its neon redone, and will be part of some 'Milk Farm Business Complex'. What ever it is that it's turning into, it won't have short stacks or two eggs any style. At least the sign will light up again some day. Many thanks to Dave & Debra van Hulsteyn for photos and info.

 

UPDATE 12/10 : Here's a close up shot of the Milk Farm marquee and the detail of the cow jumping over the moon. 12-10

Not sure what's come of this old sign, but the Villa Trailer Park used to be a real eye-catcher.
