This windmill is not a Van de Kamp's but a Jessen's. Windmill themed signage were more widespread back in the 70's.

This is a nice watch sign in Stockton. Not sure if the clock still keeps good running time though.

The Johnson's Sewing Center still features one of the old signs out front. This look is reminiscent of the era before the megastores and service centers.

Here's an old sign for Dahl's Shoe Repair. This business located in Stockton not only features an old sign but is located in an old district that appears to be a throwback. So, stop by Dahl's and see if you can get a shine and dye.

 

 

Western Piano (Demolished)

This fading sign uses music notes to depict the business it advertises. So much for the Western Piano that has been demolished.

Here's an old marquee for Battens Florists in San Jose, complete with the sprouting marquee up top.

 

 

Diamonds
Oakland, CA

This old faded and blended sign sits out front the store and points the way to diamonds. Hopefully, the diamonds are much more sparkly than this sign.
