    Default Great Coca-Cola Sign on Old Le'Ora's building

    I was driving along NE 4th the other day and spotted this recently uncovered gem:

    I can't tell if the old Le'Ora's Beautye Salon is going to be torn down or if someone is attempting to fix it up, but I hope that someone plans to save the sign if the building is going to be demolished.

    Does anyone know anything???

    Does anyone know who the owners are? I'd love to contact them and see what their plans are for this sign.

    It's owned by Brownstone Real Estate LLC. Their address of 211 N. Broadway in Edmond traces to this law firm:

    What is the deal in OKC of creating all these false facades? Is anything in OKC even real?

    Those boards would look killer in a downtown bar or even in someone's loft.

    Are there demo people on-site? If so, ask them if you can take them.

    Otherwise, I'm going to call the demo company and see if I can arrange for someone to pick them up.

    Just spoke to the guy doing the demolition... He's going to run by the site to double-check on the boards (wasn't exactly sure what I was talking about).

    Assuming he gives the okay, who wants to go pick them up???

    absolutely, if no one else wants them I will take them...I have a small Coke collection (60's era square top machine, assorted signs etc)

    If they are lying on the side of the road for trash pickup anyone can take them. You don't even have to ask. If I lived there I would be picking these up right now.

    My only concern would be insect infested, esp termites, anyway to get them treated for such a thing just to make sure you dont have "unintended consequences" also without damaging the ad further (or is it farther)??

    Anyone know anything about the "__emens groceries fresh & cured meats" store mentioned in the ad? The address (__ 2993) doesn't match this building or is that a phone number???

    mmm snagged it!

    I called the guy doing the demo and while initially suspicious, he ended up being very helpful. mmm got over there with a truck and a helper and picked up all the boards.

    Look forward to seeing what becomes of this! I'm really glad it was at least saved from a landfill.

    i've got it! a big shout out to pete for making it happen. the sign is around 12x20, so it's going to take a special space... but i'm putting an offer on a house where, coincidentally, i think it will fit perfectly. for now, i've got the boards in a storage shed and out of the elements. the plan is to clean them up over the next few weeks. i'll try to post pics throughout the process! -M

    I can think of several types of business establishments where that wall would look really cool.

    that's true... the benefit there is that the piece could still be enjoyed in a public context. i wouldn't rule that option out depending on how events unfold. my concern, though, would be what happens to the piece if such a business establishment were to fold. -M
