Last in this series of old signs from Stokely Event Center in Tulsa, OK. Only one of these three companies is still in business in the U.S. They were all among the very top in their individual industries 50 yrs ago.
For anyone interested, several other signs from this shoot as well as a few of their larger outdoor collection can be seen here -- http://smu.gs/1zJGcSN
The Stokely Event Center, is a showcase for a 30- year collection of neon and porcelain signs. It is owned, operated by and housed in a former workshop of one of Tulsa’s foremost outdoor advertising companies, Stokely Outdoor Advertising. It’s a popular site for a variety of corporate and private functions of all kinds in Tulsa. As you can see here, it’s loaded with their collection of old neon & porcelain signs. They also have several large outdoor neon signs around the exterior of the property, most of which are turned on only for special events.
