Mission Orange

This once-colorful old Mission Orange sign takes some careful sleuthing to find. Tucked under some old cedar trees at the back of an old commercial building at SE 39th and Gladstone, this sign probably once advertised the orange soda at a long-gone grocery store at this location. An almost extinct sign just to the right of this could have been a grocery sign. Thanks again to Jay for telling me about this sign.

Hugo Kern Furniture Refinishing

This "HUGO KERN FURNITURE REFINISHING" and the "CUSTOM UPHOLSTERY" sign above it have been on this west-facing wall of the shop on the corner of SE 39th and Gladstone for decades. The top sign even has a couple of generations of signs painted over. A nice bit of old signage, even though it is marred by some more recent electrical work.
