Alta View Motel Cafe – Sandy, UT – gone

I snapped this one several years ago on State Street, a major road that runs through Salt Lake City and points south. This one is in Sandy. There was no building at the time, just a bunch of trees and this sign. Last month I drove past again and now the trees are gone and they are clearing the land for some new development.

The utility pole was so close, there was no way to capture the sign alone.

Here is the back side of the sign

Alana Motel – Clearfield, Ut – gone

I snapped this one in 2003 in Clearfield, UT. The Motel is still there, but sadly they replaced this sign with a generic plastic one.  In this picture, some of the sign had already been replaced so that ALANA and MOTEL were plastic, but the still had the neon arrows.

The Gateway is gone

It’s sad to start out the new place with word that an old sign is gone, but the Gateway Motel in Tulsa has torn down its sign. I snapped a few pics of it some years ago. Even though it wasn’t a great sign, it is better than what is going to replace it. I snapped this one in May of 2005.
