El Rey Motel
Globe, AZ
El Rey Cafe
Globe, AZ
Farmers Insurance
Globe, AZ
The El Rey Motel was built in 1938 as the El Rey Hotel Court. There was a different sign there then. This sign is probably from the 1950s. It was restored just months before this photo was taken in 2012. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

The El Rey Cafe opened in 1947. This sign might be from then. The Libby's name was added to the sign much more recently. I don't know if the El Rey Cafe and El Rey Motel had the same owners. The businesses are not near each other. [map]

This Farmers Insurance sign has faded quite a bit and the neon has been removed. It appears that the sign revolved originally. These Farmers Insurance signs were mass-produced. I have only seen them in Arizona, California, and Utah so they might have been a West Coast thing. This photo is from 2012. By 2016, the sign had been repainted with a much simpler design. [map]

Bacon's Boots & Saddles
Globe, AZ
Mesa Italiana Restaurant
Holbrook, AZ
Bacon's Boots & Saddles has been here since at least 1953. This sign is probably from then. [map]

The Mesa Italiana Restaurant sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

El Rancho Motel
& Restaurant
Holbrook, AZ
Pow Wow Trading Post
Holbrook, AZ
The El Rancho Motel & Restaurant is still operating. The sign is probably from the 1960s. For more, see this website. [map]

The Pow Wow Trading Post opened in 1946. There was originally a neon sign here in addition to the neon letters on the roof. This sign is probably from the 1960s. The store has been closed since at least 2009. For more, see this website. [map]

Butterfield Stage Co. Steak House
Holbrook, AZ
The Butterfield Stage Co. Steak House sign appears to be from the 1960s or 1970s. However, online information suggests it might not have opened until 1985. [map]

Holbrook Inn
Holbrook, AZ
Plainsman
Coffee Shop
Holbrook, AZ
Navajo Motel [gone]
Holbrook, AZ
The Holbrook Inn was built in 1960 as the Woods Inn. It was later known as Pope's Inn. Both times, the lettering was changed at the top of the sign. For more, see this website. [map]

The Plainsman Coffee Shop sign appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. The restaurant has been closed for at least several years. For more, see this website. [map]

The Navajo Motel sign was still there in 2006 although the motel was long closed. By 2012, the sign was gone. [photo thanks Glenda Campbell]

The Arcadia Lodge was built around 1938 as the Arcadia Court. This sign looks like it from the 1950s or 1960s. For more, see this website. [map]

Kingman Club
Kingman, AZ
Hotel Beale
Kingman, AZ
The Kingman Club opened in 1944. This sign is probably from the 1950s. This photo is from 2012. In 2015, new owners restored the sign's neon and bulbs. For more, see this website. [map]

ABC Buffet
Kingman, AZ
Hill Top Motel
Kingman, AZ
Lo's Chinese
Restaurant
Kingman, AZ
The ABC Buffet sign was adapted from an earlier business. It originally advertised for the King's Arms Restaurant in the early 1960s. This photo is from 2012. In 2016, the sign was repainted for the India Spice-N-Bar. For more, see this website. [map]

The Hill Top Motel was built in 1954 and this sign is probably from then. The sign was repainted around 2009. This daytime photo is from 2012. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [night photo from 2006 thanks Glenda Campbell] [map]

The Lo's Chinese Restaurant sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. Half of the yellow plastic ball on top of the sign is gone now. I believe the restaurant is closed. [map]

Jarman Shoes
Miami, AZ
Bracker's Department Store
Nogales, AZ
These Jarman Shoes signs must have been mass-produced but this is the only one I have seen. The neon below the sign apparently alternated between Eddie's and Edlen's. I assume the name of the store was Eddie Edlen's. [map]

The Bracker's Department Store was established in 1924. These signs are probably from the 1950s. [map]

Hassayampa Inn
Prescott, AZ
Ironclad Bicycles
Prescott, AZ
Prescott Valley Motel
Prescott Valley, AZ
The Hassayampa Inn opened as the Hassayampa Hotel in 1927. This sign is probably a refurbished original. It is lit at night. The hotel was named after the Hassayampa River north of town. [map]

Ironclad Bicycles was established in 1992. This sign looks like it was repurposed from another business. It is similar to this Launderama sign. [map]

The Prescott Valley Motel opened around 1966 and is still in operation. [map]
