Ron's Hamburgers
Skiatook, OK
ATM
Stroud, OK
Rock Cafe
Stroud, OK
Skyliner Motel
Stroud, OK
Ron's Hamburgers was originally known as Red's Hamburgers. The sign is probably from the 1950s. Ron's Hamburgers, a Tulsa-based chain, was established in 1975. So this location and sign must have been adapted after that. [map]

This neon ATM sign is a modern creation. For more, see this website. [map]

The Rock Cafe opened in 1939. The building was constructed with rocks excavated during the construction of Route 66. The sign is supposedly from the late 1940s although it looks more like 1960s to me. It was restored around 2003. For more, see this website. [map]

The Skyliner Motel sign was built in 1950 and this sign is from then. Sometime between 2006 (first photo above) and 2012 (second photo), the "Motel" letters were changed from neon to plastic. For more, see this website. [map]

First National Bank
Tonkawa, OK
Hi-Way Cafe
Vinita, OK
Del Camino Motel [gone]
Woodward, OK
This First National Bank sign is probably from the 1950s. The patching and neon tubing holes seem to indicate that this sign has probably been altered. [photo thanks Glenda Campbell] [map]

The Hi-Way Cafe sign is probably from the 1950s. The restaurant is still open. [map]

The Del Camino Motel sign had been missing the plastic panels with the motel's name since at least 2007. These photos are from 2011. The motel and sign were demolished around 2012.

Clark Electric
Woodward, OK
Fenimore Hardware
Woodward, OK
This Clark Electric sign was originally a Kaiser-Frazer car dealership sign. The building below the sign is vacant. For more, see this website. [map]

Fenimore Hardware is gone but this sign remains. [map]

United Supermarket
Woodward, OK
United Supermarket
Bartlesville, OK
United Supermarket
Clinton, OK
United Supermarket
Enid, OK
United Supermarket
Frederick, OK
United Supermarket
Elk City, OK
The United Supermarket chain was established in Sayre, OK in 1916. There are now about 50 locations in Oklahoma and Texas. These locations' signs appear to be from the 1950s and obviously had neon originally. I don't know of any that still have neon tubing.

Yukon's Best Flour
Yukon, OK
The Yukon's Best Flour mill and grain elevators were built from 1900-1902 and were in use until the 1930s. The mill is closed but the building is still used to store grain. The two signs on top were built in the 1940s and contain about 2,500 bulbs. They were restored in 2013. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]
