Hey everyone! These signs are from a long-closed department store in downtown Birmingham, Ala. We think that they were installed inside of a section rented by Schiff's. There are 3 of the Schiff's Shoes signs, about 4' x 3' each, then 2 of each of the other signs. The 'Free Parking' signs are in the worse shape, one behind the one pictured has a lot of chipping paint, so one of these might have been in a window or outside the store. The other signs, despite broken neon units, are in great shape. The transformers and mounting hardware are gone, but you can see where they were on the backs of them.
Anyone seen anymore Schiff's signs out there? I know of one set of letters found in a basement of a Minneapolis advertising agency. They have since hung the sign up in their office. Any feedback, history, etc are welcomed.
Thanks for looking, and cheers!
