Neon sign donated to City Life Museums


December 25, 1991|By Edward Gunts

The United Sanitary Chemical Co., a Baltimore-based operation since 1930, will donate a sign that it has used for advertising for the past 43 years to the Baltimore City Life Museums during a ceremony tomorrow at the museum.

Made of neon and porcelain enamel, the sign originally featured a flashing figure whose mop moved back and forth.

It has hung near the northeast corner of Howard Street and North Avenue for 33 years.

Triangle Sign Co., creator of the sign, has agreed to deliver it to the City Life Museums' warehouse so it can be restored and eventually displayed.
