Located at 117 West 400 South in Salt Lake, The Summit Group has preserved the old vintage neon sign that was for United Electric Supply back in the 1950s. The lettering would light up alternating messages of “United Electric Supply” and “House of Service”.
England Plumbing Supply has a cool vintage sign I always love to see and stopped to document. I read that it was built by YESCO in the 1950s as a neon sign for their previous location and they moved here in 1967 and removed the neon and painted it.

Snelgrove Ice Cream became a very common sight around Utah after its founding in 1929.
The 40 foot tall vintage pink sign with a double ice cream cone spinning here at 850 E 2100 S in Salt Lake has been a fun thing to see since it was put up in 1962.
The plaque on the sign says:
Site of the Former Snelgrove Ice Cream Company\Snelgrove Ice Cream Company (1929-1990) ran their popular ice cream parlor and factory on this site for 5 years. The distinctive double-scoop cone sign was erected in 1962 and was famously depicted on a 2002 Salt Lake Olympics pin.
Here’s another of their former locations with a double cone, this one is at 605 E 400 S in Salt Lake. Squirrel Brothers left the cone in place and then Jimmy John’s painted it black.
This cool old photo is one I found online here.
