Union Window Shade
& Awning Company
Union, NJ
Hy-Way Bowl
Union, NJ
Gaiser's European Style Provisions
Union, NJ
Union Window Shade & Awning Company opened here in 1940. [map]

The Hy-Way Bowl sign appears to be from the 1950s. I don't know what inspired the cactus outline that has been added. [map]

Gaiser's European Style Provisions is a wholesale/retail butcher shop. The sign looks like it is from the 1950s or so and later updated with backlit plastic letters. [map]

Vineland Municipal Electric Utility
Vineland, NJ
West Milford Florist
West Milford, NJ
The Vineland Municipal Electric Utility sign went dark for a few years but the neon was restored and relit around 2008. For more, see this website. [map]

West Milford Florist opened in 1950. Their sign looks recently repainted. In the 1990s, the petals were white, the hat was black and the pole was green. The face had no curls or dimples and the brim of the hat read "say it with flowers". [map]

Harbor Inn
Wildwood, NJ
Ice Cream Man
Wildwood, NJ
Cork 'N' Bottle [gone]
Wildwood, NJ
Urie's Waterfront Restaurant
Wildwood, NJ
The Harbor Inn bar sign is probably from the 1950s. For more, see this website. [map]

The Ice Cream Man sign was originally located at Schumann's Restaurant which is gone now. The sign was removed around 2003 and has gone through several owners since then. During this time, the neon was restored. The sign is now in a private collection but visible through the window of a former Woolworth. [map]

The Cork 'N' Bottle sign was probably built in the 1950s. In 2010, it was damaged in a snowstorm and removed.

The Urie's Waterfront Restaurant opened in 1956 as Urie's Fish Fry. Around 1998, the restaurant was sold and renamed. I believe these signs are from that time. [map]

The Kelly's Cafe signs appear to be from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]
