Tony's Cocktails
Woodland, CA
Tony's Motel [gone]
Woodland, CA
Woodland Court Motel [gone]
Woodland, CA
The Tony's Cocktails sign is probably from the 1950s. For more, see this website. [map]

I assume that Tony's Motel, which is just down the street from Tony's Cocktails, was owned by the same man. The "Tony's" panel might have been a later addition or replacement for a name change. The sign was removed in 2016.

The Woodland Court Motel sign was probably from the 1950s or earlier. The panels were previously painted red. The sign was removed in 2012. It is now in a private collection. For more, see this website.

Corner Drug Co.
Woodland, CA
The Corner Drug Co. store opened as Pond's Drug Store in 1897. In 1934, the name was changed to Corner Drug. The store was part of the Walgreen Agency chain. The Corner Drug sign panels were installed in 1948. I don't know if the "Drugs" sign and the mortar and pestle signs were there before that. When the store became part of the Valu Rite chain, the "Walgreen" text was covered up with small Valu Rite panels. The signs were restored in 2013. For more, see this website. [map]

The Rex Club opened in 1928. This sign is probably from the 1930s or 1940s. [map]
