John, you've gathered a cool gallery of photos here. Delighted to see my shot of the Prince's Hamburgers sign included in the group!

This hits the spot for those of us who love old signs. A local gem was recently painted over. So glad I grabbed some shots of the Ding How classic Chinese restaurant sign on old Route 66 in Amarillo before it was defaced.
