There are laws that prevent this today even if it is cost justified advertising.

Great photos Peter. I really like the "Used Cars" signs. I just finished restoring this large OK neon earlier this year for a guy out west. Same as the one in your photo that the guys are standing around and touching. I never understood what compels people to want to walk up and touch neon tubes, but see grown adults did that in the 1950's too. I guess people are just drawn to them like bugs! Several years ago I had one of those large round "OK" signs that they are pointing to in the other photo. It was a 3-piece sign and 10' in diameter. A friend of mine wanted it worse than I did, so sold it to him. Thanks for sharing the photos!

The Coca Cola and Drug store signs are awesome. They dont make them like that anymore.

I ran across this photo of that 10' diameter "OK" sign like Peter posted above. I purchased this around '98 or '99. When I brought it home, I climbed on my parents garage roof to get the photo. Had my wife (we were not even married yet) sit next to it for some perspective of size.

To paraphrase "they don't make them like that coffee shop bowling sign anymore" must have been a big blow or a strike to knock that sign down.
