Von Bayer Masonic Lodge [gone]
Tuscaloosa, AL
This photo of the Von Bayer Masonic Lodge sign is from 2007. In 2011, the building was destroyed by a tornado. The sign is also gone.

Moon Winx Lodge
Tuscaloosa, AL
2007: 2020:
The Moon Winx Lodge opened in the late 1920s as the Moon Winx Motor Court. This sign was built in 1957. The "Lodge" part of the sign originally read "Court". The moon flashes on and off and the eye winks at night. In 2016, the sign was put up for sale. The owner must have changed his mind. In 2017, the sign was repainted a darker color. The bottom of the sign was changed with no neon and new text. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

Bel-Aire Motel
Tuscaloosa, AL
Burch & Hatfield
Formal Shop
Tuscaloosa, AL
Alberta
Baptist Church [gone]
Tuscaloosa, AL
WDHN-TV
Webb, AL
WTVY
Webb, AL
The Bel-Aire Motel sign is probably from the 1950s as well. [map]

The Burch & Hatfield Formal Shop opened in 1975. There was probably another store/name before that since this sign appears to be from the 1950s. In 2014, the business was renamed the Burch Formal Shop. [map]

The Alberta Baptist Church globe sign looked like a Norge Ball sign turned sideways. This photo is from 2007. The church was rebuilt after it was destroyed by a tornado in 2011. The sign did not survive.

WDHN-TV was established as an ABC affiliate in 1970 and this sign appears to be from then. [map]

WTVY was established as a CBS affiliate in 1955. I believe it was originally located in Dothan. In 1960, the station moved to Webb, AL. This sign might have been built in 1955 and brought to this location. Or it may have been built in 1960. The station moved in 1993 to a new broadcast center in Dothan, AL. The transmission tower and this sign were left behind. [map]
