Shreveport Signs

Rountree Used
on Mansfield
Shreveport, LA
Around the Clock
Bail Bonds
Shreveport, LA
Kings Lounge
Shreveport, LA
George's Grill
Shreveport, LA
Rountree Ford was established in 1940 and had other locations in Shreveport. This sign at Rountree Used on Mansfield is probably from the late 1950s or early 1960s. By 2013, this location had closed. The lot was still vacant and the sign was still there in 2018. I suspect the letter blocks on this sign revolved at one time. By 2019, another used car business, Car Giant, had moved in and adapted the block letters on the sign. [map]

The Around the Clock Bail Bonds sign might be from the 1970s. It is a great example of a vacuum-formed plastic sign. The embossing was created by pulling a flat plastic sheet over a mold with a vacuum. The paint is applied after that. [map]

The Kings Lounge has been gone for many years but this sign remains. It is located on Kings Highway. [map]

George's Grill opened in 1960. This sign is probably from the 1950s. There was probably another restaurant here that installed the sign. George's closed in 2017. The building is still vacant and this sign remains. [map]

First National Bank
Shreveport, LA
parking garage
Shreveport, LA
Ridgway's [gone]
Shreveport, LA
The First National Bank has been closed and the bank has been vacant for decades but this sign remains. The Avenue Branch was there by the early 1940s. The sign may be from then. [map]

This parking garage sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

Ridgway's was established in 1926. This sign was probably from the 1950s. The printing company had offices in ten states. This Shreveport location was still open when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2013, there were panels covering the sign for ARC Document Solutions. By 2016, the sign was gone. There was another Ridgway's neon sign on the side of the building that is gone now.

Porter Howard Garage
Shreveport, LA
2010: 2019:
The Porter Howard Garage offered car repairs and parking. It opened in 1957 and this sign appears to be from then. The building has been abandoned for many years but this sign remains. In the eight years between the photos above, the paint has faded considerably and the rust is getting worse. For more, see this website. [map]

C&C Electric Co.
Shreveport, LA
Don's Seafood
& Steak House [gone]
Shreveport, LA
Cub Liquor
Shreveport, LA
The C&C Electric Co. was established in 1946 and is still in business. This sign might be from the 1950s. [map]

Don's Seafood & Steak House opened here in 1965. The restaurant closed in 2008. This sign was gone by 2013.

The Cub Lounge opened in 1939. These signs are probably from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

Sun Furniture
Shreveport, LA
Cash in a Flash
Shreveport, LA
Sun Furniture was established in 1950, opening a block away from this location. This sign appears to be from the 1950s. The store closed in 2018 but the sign remains. [map]

The Cash in a Flash sign poles originally supported panels for an Alamo Plaza Motor Hotel. That sign was still there in 1979. By 2000, that sign was gone and the panels for this sign had been added to the poles, with an additional angled pole to support the readerboard. The sign probably advertised for another business before Cash in a Flash and most likely had neon. The neon cylinder on top probably flashed. [map]

Herby K's
Shreveport, LA
Palomar Motel
Shreveport, LA
Herby-K's was established in 1936 as a restaurant and bar. It is still operating. This sign is probably from the 1950s. [map]

The Palomar Motel was originally known as the Hotel Palomar Courts. The tourist court was built around 1938. The neon sign is from the early 1950s. The units are now used for low-income housing. [map]
