The All Star Motel at 754 W North Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah is one of my favorite vintage motels in the area, I love the look of it, the old signs, the colorful mini-golf area and more.
I love the old vintage signs, even better when they’re neon signs. I love to look into the story they tell.
Located at 960 E 2100 S in Salt Lake City, Nu-Crisp Popcorn Co. was established in 1933 and started this location in 1946. The best I can tell it closed in 1994 so I’m surprised it is still sitting here undisturbed in 2020.
They sold 33 flavors of popcorn and a lot of taffy and candy.
The Capitol Motel at 1749 State St in Salt Lake City, Utah.
They used to have a really cool vintage sign before it was blown down and replaced but a cool, but not as cool sign.
It was built in 1931 by brothers in law Marinus J. Gerrltse and Frank DeNigtre who had immigrated from the Netherlands. Prior to that they ran the Wasatch Service Station south south of here.
Granite Furniture here in Sugarhouse, Salt Lake City, Utah opened in 1910. They had this cool rotating vintage neon sign put in later – I heard it was in the 1960’s.
Granite Furniture closed in 2004 and later it was converted into other businesses and thankfully they’ve kept the unique sign, just painted in new colors and updated.

I saw this cool old ad online here.
The Crane Company constructed this building in 1910 to house the Salt Lake City branch of its internationally-known valve, engine, plumbing fixture, and heating system business. The company opened its Salt Lake branch in 1902, just a few years before many of the city’s first skyscrapers were constructed. Consequently, many of Salt Lake City’s most significant buildings were fitted with Crane supplies. As with other Crane Company buildings across the country, the company’s name is prominently featured in raised pediments and on a large neon sign on the roof. The Crane Building is relatively simple in style with modest ornamentation around the north entry and long the cornice.
The architect was Ware & Treganza.
