The Westland Shopping Center was built from 1962-1963 and this sign is from then. The name and the signs saguaro cactus came from the shopping center's location at the far west end of town. The sign is about 20 feet tall. Typical of early 1960s signs, it combined plastic and neon. The "Westland" panel is backlit plastic while neon channel letters are used for "Shopping Center." One unusual aspect of the sign is the continuous painting on the sides, conveying a three-dimensional cactus. The cactus is outlined with green neon while "Shopping Center" is lit in white.
