Neat to see the transom window opened on the Tavern.....I can just imagine the hot air being vented out at the ceiling level with them. The tavern looks like an art deco beauty as well, and the Orpheum marquee, wowsers! Thanks Peter.

Peter you get glimpses of the stone work on the buildings and there is some real nice work done there as well. Downtown SLC is an underappreciated architectural gem.

These are both beautiful and a little depressing at the same time. The amount of effort that went in to making these storefronts and advertising beautiful is amazing. We seem to have peaked aesthetically about 75 years ago. Nothing we build today looks like this anymore...that's the depressing part. Thanks for sharing though.

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!

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.

My gosh I'd love to see the Coconut Grove building in a daytime shot. This art deco collector/fan is in heaven looking at that feast for the eyes!! It's sad to know that by the 50's/60's the deco style was so "dated" that the majority of facades in the style were removed, or in the case of my local area, refaced in aluminum coverings. The wrought iron work, stone work, neon.....there's just very little of it left to see today. frown

Much larger inside than I would've expected from what we can see of the outside....pretty cavernous space! It certainly has the tropical look, haha. Thanks for posting the additional pics you have of it.

Great pics as always Peter. I took 5 semesters of photography way back in college and I've noticed your pics are all crystal clear and the majority of them have every tone from bright white to dark black (the sign of a good B&W photograph). Most of these were probably taken with medium or large format cameras by a photographer who knew what he was doing - they always look great.

Keep them coming and thank you for posting for all of us to see.... great pics of stations, motorcycles and history.
