dkcomet I went to see a movie at my favorite theater & was sad to see some letters out. This place cares, so I'm sure it will be fixed soon. #laurelhurst #portland #cinematreasures #idliketobuyavowel #dksigns 2w

dkcomet Alexandria, Louisiana in the 1940s. From a box of Estate sale slides. Both of these places still exist, but the great signs are long gone. Weiss & Goldring has moved, but they still sell high end mens fashions. The Bentley is currently closed & for sale, but it's stunning & opulent inside. I hope it survives. #tbt #weissandgoldring #hotelbentley #1940s #alexandria #louisiana #dksigns #dkcars 2w

dkcomet When I was a kid, I thought having a Diners Club card would be very classy. Started in 1950, it was the prototype for modern credit. #dinersclub #creditcards #Reno #ishotasigninreno #renosign11 #dksigns 2w
  •   schmoopietoo Diners Club = swanky 2w
  •   heathersabrina Telly Savalas! 2w
  •   dkcomet @wirth1313 - Actually, it still does. It originally sold to Citibank in the early 80s, then changed hands to Discover & just recently to Bank of Montreal. Having the Discover logo on the card kinda ruined it, but it's still around. Just used mostly for businesses now, not for rich playboys & movie stars like us. 2w
  •   missmatador I love how you did this, nice one! 2w
  •   scott_ko38 This brings back memories. When I started my job in 1989, my employer gave me a Diner's Club card. Great find! 2w
  •   ringoslover Man. I love it!! Reminds me of being a kid too - seeing these at counters in restaurants or department stores. It's amazing the logos that stick in your head as a kid! 2w
  •   scubatrucker That's the 2nd BankAmericard I've seen. The other is on a sign in Cuba New Mexico...somewhere deep in my feed 6d

dkcomet A tale of 2 Ranchos part 2. Also with the orange & yellow theme. The Del Rancho is the closest sign to my house in Portland. It has been falling apart for years. The balls had all cracked & fallen off. They were originally 1/2 yellow & 1/2 orange. Some of the motel letters were missing. It was a mess. Until this year. New Motel panels & this week, new balls. Yay! Now if only I could paint the balls. #twofertuesday #rancho #delrancho #portland #dksigns 2w

dkcomet Renner's. Portland. I need a day shot of this. It's way better when you can see the shape of the sign. I'm coming back with a ladder to get the last L as well. #renners #portland #signswitharrows #dksigns 3w
