Peoples Missionary Baptist Church
Dallas, TX
Preston Royal Shopping Center
Dallas, TX
The Peoples Missionary Baptist Church sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

The Preston Royal Shopping Center was built in 1958. This sign is probably from then. [map]

Deerpath Shopping Center
Dallas, TX
2011: 2017: 2018:
The Deerpath Shopping Center was built around 1955. The supporting panels were being repainted in 2017. The top part of the sign must have revolved originally. [map]

Steinway Hall
Dallas, TX
Reddy Kilowatt
Dallas, TX
Anchor Motel
Dallas, TX
Texas Paint & Wallpaper
Dallas, TX
Steinway Hall sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. It was restored in 2012. The top part of the sign was originally a bulb-studded disk. The "PIANOS" letters originally read "ROGERS" for the Rogers Electric Supply Company. I think the Rogers Electric building is from 1959 so this sign may be from then. For more, see this website. [map]

This Reddy Kilowatt sign is located behind a former Dallas Power & Light substation that was converted into a residence. I don't know if this sign was ever installed at the substation or if it came from somewhere else. For more, see this website. [map]

The Anchor Motel has been here since at least the mid-1960s. This photo is from 2011. Around 2014, the neon letters were replaced with backlit plastic. For more, see this website. [map]

Texas Paint & Wallpaper has been around since 1947. This sign is probably from the 1960s or so. For more paint can signs, see this page. [map]

Texas Liquor [gone]
Dallas, TX
Danny's Liquor
Dallas, TX
The Texas Liquor and Danny's Liquor signs are probably from the 1960s. I assume these stores were part of the same chain at one time. Danny's has been closed since around 2016. This sign is very similar to the Bonanza Homes signs which were built in Tennessee, Texas, California, and probably elsewhere. I don't know which signs came first or may have inspired the others. The Texas Liquor sign was removed in 2017 just after these photos were taken. [Danny's map]

Clearview Louver
Window Corp.
Dallas, TX
Drug Store
Dallas, TX
Motel Winnway
Dallas, TX
Cabrera Auto Service
Dallas, TX
The Clearview Louver Window Corp. is long gone but this sign remains. This sign was probably built in the 1940s or 1950s. The bottom panel that read "Louver Windows" has been painted over. The space housed the Club Clearview nightclub from 1985-2007. For more, see this website. [map]

The Drug Store sign is probably from the 1950s. It was apparently animated. There hasn't been a drug store here since at least 2008 but this sign remains. [map]

The Motel Winnway sign is probably from the 1940s or 1950s. The two arrows were probably later additions. The sign was repainted around 2016, eliminating the word "Motel" and the bulbs from the top arrow. The Winnway name has been a tacked on panel (still visible under the paint) indicating that the motel went by another name originally. For more, see this website. [map]

The Cabrera Auto Service sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. There may have been another muffler shop business (Muffler King?) here originally but the sign has looked like this and Cabrera Auto Service has been here since at least 2008. [map]

Ray's Sporting Goods
Dallas, TX
El Fenix Restaurant
McKinney Ave.
Dallas, TX
El Fenix Restaurant
Colorado Blvd.
Dallas, TX
Ray's Sporting Goods was established in 1949. This sign is probably from the late 1950s or 1960s. [map]

The El Fenix Restaurant chain was established in 1918. There are now about 20 locations, mainly in Dallas/Fort Worth. These signs are probably from the 1950s or 1960s. For more, see this website. [McKinney map]; [Colorado map]

Campisi's Egyptian Restaurant
Dallas, TX
The Campisi's Egyptian Restaurant opened in 1950. The first Campisi's Italian restaurant opened in 1956. To save money, when the business moved to this location, previous sign which advertised for the Egyptian Lounge was adapted. The word "Lounge" was changed to "Restaurant". For more, see this website. [map]

Truett-Worrall Company
Dallas, TX
The Truett-Worrall Company was established in 1940. The company moved to this location in 1955. These signs appear to be from then. The pole sign is similar to these in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Hutchins. [map]

Optical Clinic
Dallas, TX
Oak Cliff Mirror & Glass Company
Dallas, TX
The Optical Clinic sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

The Oak Cliff Mirror & Glass Company was established in 1932. The company moved to this location in 1956 and this rooftop sign was probably installed then. For more, see this website. [map]
