Tumble Inn
Powder River, WY
Classic Lanes
Powell, WY
The Tumble Inn has been closed since around 2005 but this sign remains. The cowboy's gesturing hand was lit in two-part animation. [map]

The Ideal Bread tile sign is installed above Sage Creek Realty. I assume there was a bakery here originally. [map]

South
Federal Inn [gone]
Riverton, WY
Tomahawk Motor Lodge
Riverton, WY
The South Federal Inn sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. The tubing holes on the "Inn" portion of the sign suggest that this place may have been the "South Federal Motel" first or went by an entirely different name. This photo is from 2012. By 2014, this sign had been replaced with a plastic box sign.

The Tomahawk Motor Lodge signs may be from the 1960s. For more, see this website. [map]

The New Studio Photography sign is shaped like a roll of film. The store opened here in 1919 and is still in business. [map]

Sage Room
Rock Springs, WY
The Park Hotel has been here since at least 1914. It is now closed. [map]
