Signs of the Times: Murphy Elevator Co.

Today's sign theme? Elevators. The Murphy Elevator Co.with passenger and freight elevators. It's a big neon strip sign at 128 E. Main St. Hard to miss and something of a landmark , at least to me. And yes - they are still there and in business! Since 1932, I am happy to say. I don't get to write that often on these posts. I am fond of the gilt on glass window sign, too. This style needs to make a comeback. The gilt is really eye catching on a drive by.
