Clover Grill
New Orleans, LA
Royal Pharmacy
New Orleans, LA
Crescent City Steaks
New Orleans, LA
The Clover Grill opened in 1939. I don't know when these spot-lit Coca-Cola signs were mass-produced. My guess would be 1950s. [map]

The Royal Pharmacy opened in 1935. I'm guessing that this sign is also from the 1950s. [map]

Crescent City Steaks was established in 1934. This sign is probably from the 1940s or 1950s. For more, see this website. [map]

Sanlin Building
New Orleans, LA
2006: 2019:
The Sanlin Building's aluminum fašade was installed in 1953. It conceals an 1840s Greek Revival building. In 2006, the facade was still damaged from a hurricane. By 2014, the facade had been restored. In 2019, plans were announced to return the building to its original 1840s appearance. The fate of the Sanlin sign is not yet known but it was still there in 2020. For more, see this website. [map]

Lenny's Piccadilly Lounge and the Half Shell Restaurant
New Orleans, LA

2006:

2020:
Lenny's Piccadilly Lounge and the Half Shell Restaurant have been closed for many years. I believe that the Lenny's sign was damaged during Hurricane Katrina. That left panel was patched by 2011. The building has been repainted a couple of times since then and more of the neon on the signs is missing. [map]

Casamento's Restaurant
New Orleans, LA
Casamento's Restaurant opened in 1919. The sign is probably from the 1950s. For more, see this website. [map]

Bunny Bread
New Orleans, LA
These Bunny Bread signs are probably from the 1960s or 1970s. This Flowers Baking Co. factory location still has a store with Bunny Bread products. [map]

Morning Call
New Orleans, LA
La Pharmacie Francaise
New Orleans, LA
The Morning Call coffee stand opened in the French Market in 1870. It closed in 2019. A new location opened in 2021 and this replica sign was created for it by Signworx. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

The La Pharmacie Francaise sign hangs above the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. The pharmacy was built for Louis J. Dufilho, Jr., believed to be America's first licensed pharmacist. His shop opened at this location in 1823. The museum opened in 1950. The sign was built around 2013. It is a replica of a sign from the 1960s. [map]

Southern Food & Beverage Museum
New Orleans, LA
These signs are displayed inside the Southern Food & Beverage Museum. [map]

The Browning's Mexican Grill sign came from Little Rock, AR. The restaurant operated there from 1946-2014. The sign was installed in 1950.

Sim's Bar-B-Que was established in Little Rock in 1937. The restaurant is still open. This sign does not appear to be that old, possibly from the 1960s or 1970s.

The Angelo Gendusa Bakery opened in 1934 in New Orleans. This sign might be from then or shortly after that. The company was bought out by another bakery in the 2000s.

The Commander's Palace restaurant in New Orleans opened in 1893. A pole sign similar to this one was installed by the 1940s. This sign might be from the 1960s or so. It was donated to the museum in 2020 when a replica sign was installed. For more, see this website.
