Valley Diner (defunct)

Cool ghost neon sign for the Valley Diner outside Toms Brook (south of Strasburg, VA) along U.S. Route 11. According to Diner Hunter, it opened in 1932 and was likely built on-site. This sign has been there since at least the 1960s. dinerhunter.com/2011/11/27/valley-diner-toms-brook-va/

Vintage Pepsi and Barber Shop

Vintage plastic sign for Pepsi hanging over the Central Barber Shop, 119 Main Street (U.S. Route 11) in Woodstock, Virginia. Because if there’s one thing I think about while getting my haircut, it’s cracking open a refreshing Pepsi Cola.

Turf Motel Arrow Sign

Neon sign for Rodeway Inn & Suites, 741 E Washington Street in Charles Town, West Virginia. This establishment was once known as the “Turf Motel”. I like the dramatic red arrow directing travelers off the road.

Faded Coca-Cola ad on the side of an old building near McFarland Auto Body, 6512 Winchester Avenue (U.S. Route 11) in Inwood, West Virginia. Above the Coke ad I believe it reads “A.M. Shirley & Son Groceries & Meats”.
