Sadly enough, a great deal of the great historical neon signs that could once be found across America have disappeared – often with the businesses they promoted – into the annals of history. Many of these signs still live on in museums and private collections across the country. Others were dismantled and consigned to scrap heaps by the new property owners.
Here are some now-defunct or otherwise retired neon signs that are/were located in the USA:
- The Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer sign (Chicago, IL)
