Farmers Insurance [gone]
Safford, AZ
H.A. Waters Shoe Store [gone]
Safford, AZ
This Farmers Insurance sign was one of only a handful left that were used all across the country and still on public display. It was removed by 2018 and replaced with a modern plastic sign for Farmers.

The H.A. Waters Shoe Store was established in 1915. It moved to this location in 1921. It was also known as the Lightning Shoe Shop. The store began selling Red Goose shoes around 1937. These Red Goose Shoes signs were mass-produced but they are very rare now. The shoe store closed in 2016 and this sign was removed then.

Tempe, AZ
The Thunderbird Motel was built in 1961. This sign appears to be from then. For more, see this website. [map]

These trapezoid shaped 7-Eleven signs are very rare now. There are several left in California. However, the slanted letters on this sign and a few in California make them even older and rarer. This original logo was used until 1969. Most of the trapezoid 7-Eleven signs in California have straight type. I'm told that this sign at the Tempe location was replaced in 2022 with a modern sign.
