Good Time Charlie's
Marion, IN
WBAT [gone]
Marion, IN
This sign at Good Time Charlie's is lit at night. I assume that the spikes were originally lit independently or in some sort of pattern. For more, see this website. [map]

The WBAT radio station had moved but this sign was still there when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2012, the sign was gone. For more, see this website.

Martinsville City of Mineral Water
Martinsville, IN
Philco [gone]
Mentone, IN
The Martinsville City of Mineral Water sign was built around 1930. It was paid for with public donations. At that time, the city was a health resort featuring mineral baths. The sign was restored in 2001. For more, see this website. [map]

Baker's Appliances was long gone but this Philco sign was still there when this photo was taken in 2009. It was still there in 2010 but gone by 2015. These signs were mass-produced. Some other examples still exist in Eutaw, AL, Albany, GA, Cincinnati, OH, and Wilmington, NC.

Evergreen Park
Business Center
Michigan City, IN
Pang-Ford Motel
Mishawaka, IN
S&H Carbonic Inc.
Mishawaka, IN
The Evergreen Park Business Center sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. It appears to have had neon originally. The Enterprise panel was probably originally a message board which was replaced sometime after 2009. This photo is from 2012. For more, see this website. [map]

The Pang-Ford Motel sign appears to be from the 1950s. The plastic "Motel" letters surely must have been neon originally. [map]

Gentis Dry Cleaning [gone]
Muncie, IN
Oasis Bar & Grill
Muncie, IN
Gentis Dry Cleaning last operated as Gentis-Huber Cleaners. These photos are from 2005. By 2013, the sign was gone. The building is still there.

The Oasis Bar & Grill opened in 1952. This sign is probably from then. There used to be a 20 foot tall chainsaw carving of a basketball player in front of this bar. By 2005, all that remained was his shoes. [map]

Wise Food
Muncie, IN
Odd Fellows Lodge
New Albany, IN
Stein Glass Co.
New Albany, IN
The Fair
New Albany, IN
This sign originally belonged to a Wise Food Market which closed sometime in the 1990s. The store housed a couple of other supermarkets after that. The building was vacant when this photo was taken in 2009. By 2013, the sign had been removed. Later that year, it had been restored and installed at the Wise Country Market. [map]

This Odd Fellows Lodge was founded in 1835. This sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

The Stein Glass Company opened here in 1939. The sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

I believe The Fair was some sort of department store. It closed in 1989 but the sign still remains. [map]
