Website Updating: Signs (Part 5 of many…)

Moving on with lots of “N” states. This sign in Omaha, NE might be gone now. It fell over a couple of months ago during high winds and was removed. It’s not known yet if it will be repaired or scrapped.

This sign in Lebanon, NJ is gone now:

The rocket sign in Alamogordo, NM:

now has letters for the loan company behind it:

This sign in Artesia, NM is gone now:

This sign in Las Cruces, NM:

has been horribly adapted:

Truly heartbreaking. The Premiere Motel sign in Albuquerque, NM:

has been turned into this crap with plastic letters:

The original corrugated plastic panel on this sign in Gallup, NM:

has been replaced with this one:

This sign in Boulder City, NV:

has been replaced with this one for the Dam Roast House & Browder Bookstore:

The 7/11 Motor Lodge in Reno, NV was demolished and this sign is gone now:

Let’s close with two bits of good news from Las Vegas, NV. This sign was removed earlier this year as the motel is being converted into apartments. The City of Las Vegas has the sign in storage and will restore it and reinstall it somewhere:

Google Street View is now showing the recently restored Par-a-Dice Motel sign and it looks fabulous. It’s located in the Las Vegas Blvd. median just south of the Shalimar Hotel. I can’t wait to see/shoot it in June!:

Back very soon with more. I’m going to try to wrap up the Signs section this weekend.

Happy trails,
dj & the dogs
