May Company Store sign
Wonderful old May Co. department store sign (with bell!) in University Heights, Ohio. What a great and unique design. I had never seen one like this before (but then, I've never followed May stores much).
According to this info at Wikipedia and elsewhere, it appears that (if I'm piecing it all together correctly) this original May store became a Kaufmann's in 2002, and is currently being converted into a Macy's (Wikipedia shows 9/9/2006, as the actual finished conversion date), as the enitre site has undergone a complete redevelopment to form the new outdoor regional shopping center, University Square. Or something like that anyway--it's quite a tangled web, this story, lol.
But the logistics and dates aside, I just thought this great sign was worth gazing at today.
