The lettering still radiates blue at the Koopman's Furniture store in Bellflower. Koopman's has been a familiar sight in the area for many years.

 

UPDATE 07/07 : Koopman's Furniture closed down in June 2007 after having been open since 1941. The sign will come down and the showroom will be leased to a national furniture chain. According to the Long Beach Press Telegram, the company couldn't keep up with international retailers like Wickes and IKEA. Another mom and pop business shuts down after losing to the big box stores. 07-07

Check out the 5 Points Liquor sign at night, off of Lincoln Ave. Too bad this sign and building is now history.

The Affordable Furniture marquee still lights up the sky at night, with the red neon arrow pointing the way in. Not sure how old this sign is, but it's always good to see a neon sign in good working order.

 

 

 

Jet Stream Liquor

This beautiful neon sign the Jet Stream Liquor was (and more or less still is) located south of the former Lockheed Air Terminal. The sign depicts the very graceful Lockheed Constellation 4 engined triple tailed transport of WWII and airliner of the 1950's. Unfortunately, this sign has been bastardized, and the "Connie" altered to look like (more or less, mostly less) the single tailed Douglas DC-3. For airplane and just "plane" people, this is a classic sign that will be missed as the WWII Burbank terminal area gives way to development.

Next to the newly renovated Pantages Theatre in Hollywood is the Frolic Room. This neon sign will catch your eye as you travel down busy Hollywood Boulevard.
