American Beauty
New Orleans, LA
Bud's Broiler [gone]
New Orleans, LA
The American Beauty egg and butter company was previously located in this warehouse. Since 2001, the building has been occupied by the ArtEgg Studios which has kept the sign in place. I believe the sign is from around 1964. For more, see this website. [map]

Bud's Broiler opened here in 1952. This location was the first of eight locations and features two identical signs on each end of the building. Bud's closed and tthe neon was removed and the "Bud's" text was painted over in 2018. The brown panels remain in 2019 and the building is still vacant. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

St. Bernard Drugs
New Orleans, LA
St. Bernard Drugs opened in 1960 and this sign appears to be from then. [map]

Mid-City Lanes Rock 'N Bowl
New Orleans, LA
2006: 2019:
Mid-City Lanes Rock 'N Bowl opened in 1941 and added rock, zydeo and R&B bands in 1988. I don't know when the sign was built or if this was its original position. [map]

Monteleone Hotel Garage
New Orleans, LA
Fischer's Jewelry
New Orleans, LA
2010: 2019: 2006: 2019:
The Monteleone Hotel Garage sign was probably from the 1940s. The hotel itself was built in 1886. The sign was replicated with new panels soon after the 2010 photo shown above. For more, see this website. [map]

Fischer's Jewelry supposedly opened in 1962. However, the sign appears to be much older than that. For more, see this website. [map]

Woodward Wight
New Orleans, LA
Meisel's Fabrics
New Orleans, LA
Franklin Printing Co.
New Orleans, LA
Q. Lee Laundry
New Orleans, LA
Woodward Wight & Co. was established in the 1880s. It was a wholesaler of groceries, hardware, construction equipment, and machinery. The business folded around 1983 but this sign remains. The warehouse building from 1912 was converted into residential use and is now known as the Woodward Loft Apartments. The neon sign appears to be from the 1940s or 1950s. [map]

Meisel's Fabrics was established in 1948 and this sign is probably from then. The store is long closed but the sign remains. [map]

The Franklin Printing Co. building now houses the Wyndham La Belle Maison hotel. This sign is located on a one-way street. There is neon on the other side. The original sign was probably from the 1940s or 1950s. This appears to be a replica installed by 2011. [map]

The Q. Lee Laundry was established in 1940. The business moved to this location in 1952. This sign is most likely from then. [map]

Felix's Restaurant
New Orleans, LA
Felix's Restaurant opened in the 1940s. These signs may be from then but they look like they are probably from the 1950s or later. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Tujague's Restaurant
New Orleans, LA
The Tujague's Restaurant was established in 1856. The signs under the canopy might be from the 1930s. The larger, projecting sign appears to be a replica of a 1920s or 1930s sign. All three signs were definitely there by the 1950s. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

Premium Parking
New Orleans, LA
Sbisa's Cafe
New Orleans, LA
The Premium Parking sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

Sbisa's Cafe was established in 1899. This sign is probably from the late 1920s or 1930s. For more, see this website. [map]
