Horn Seed Company
Oklahoma City, OK
2006: 2012: 2019:
The Horn Seed Company opened in 1921. This sign is probably from the 1950s. The store closed in 2012. In 2013, plastic panels for Classen Point were added over the existing panels. The building remained vacant until it was demolished in 2020. I don't know if the Horn Seed signs on the building were saved. For more, see this website. [map]

Cock-O-The Walk Bar & Grill
Oklahoma City, OK

2006:

2021:
In 2011, the Cock-O-The Walk Bar & Grill sign was replaced with a replica. The bar opened sometime before 1960 and the original sign was believed to have been installed then. Over the years, the sign had become rusty and the paint was chipped and faded. The neon had not been lit since at least the early 1980s. The sign was deemed too far gone to be restored. The original lettering was kept, including the reference to a tabletop shuffleboard game which was removed many years ago. The sign is about thirty feet long. The cigar-puffing rooster is about ten feet tall. The colorful sign features red, blue, green, yellow, and white neon. There is no animation. For more, see this website. [map]

Stockyard City
Oklahoma City, OK
Russ Warren Insurance Agency
Oklahoma City, OK
This Stockyard City sign serves as a welcome sign. It appears to be modern. It has been there since at least 2007. For more, see this website. [map]

Russ Warren Insurance Agency was established in 1971. This sign is probably from then. The holes indicate that the sign originally had neon tubing. [map]

Don Hickey Used Cars & Trucks [gone]
Oklahoma City, OK
Park Estates
Shopping Center
Oklahoma City, OK
Drum Room
Oklahoma City, OK
This cowboy sign at Don Hickey Used Cars & Trucks appears to be modern. It might be a replica of an earlier sign. The neon gunfire appeared to be animated. By 2016, the neon was gone and the panel was replaced with a plastic version. [map]

The Park Estates Shopping Center was completed in 1951 and this sign was built then. [map]

The Drum Room opened in 2013 and this sign was installed then. The sign must have been inspired by the Drum Room sign in Kansas City, MO. I can't find any information about any relationship between the two places. [map]

Nuway Cleaners
Oklahoma City, OK
Hi-Lo Club
Oklahoma City, OK
The Oklahoma City area Nuway Cleaners chain closed in the early 1990s. The building has been vacant since then but this sign remains. The top panel originally read "Same Day Service" while the bottom panel read "Cleaners and Laundry." There was another rooftop sign with a revolving "8" which was removed around 2009. For more, see this website. [map]

The Hi-Lo Club opened in 1956. These signs might be from then. The bar closed in 2022 and the signs have been partially covered up. The bulbs and neon have removed or destroyed. For more, see this website. [map]

Paul Puckett's Wrecker
Oklahoma City, OK
Paul Puckett's Wrecker opened in 1927 as the Capitol Hill Wrecker Service. It became Paul Puckett's in the 1940s. These signs may be from then or the 1950s. [map]

Blue Note Lounge
Oklahoma City, OK
The Blue Note Lounge sign was built in 1961. It was restored in 2011 just before this photo was taken. For more, see this website. [map]

Big Giant Supermarket
Oklahoma City, OK
2006: 2011: 2020:
This Big Giant Supermarket opened sometime in the early 1960s and closed in the 1980s. After that, several other supermarkets and businesses occupied the building including a paintball center and a nightclub. In 2009, the sign was repainted. This caveman's paint colors and details are now similar to the sign's original appearance with the details on his skin and the sandals. He may have had a belt. The sign is about 25 feet tall. If there were other locations and if any had signs like this, they are gone now. [map]
