Time to See What’s New

25 November
Nystrom Jewelers
We have made a number of acquisitions in recent months, including several large signs. We acquired the Moesch Edwards sign in a trade with local striper, Josh Shaw of Shaw Signs, Milford, OH.  The sign had been taken down by a Moesch family member and kept for more than decade with the idea of restoring it.  I had at one-time approached the family about acquiring the sign, but nothing doing.  So it sat leaning against a concrete pillar for an overpass along I-71 until...

Acquisitions update from museum founder Tod Swormstedt. Our newest additions range from the very large to the very small and several “in the middle.” The “very large” is the circa mid-1935 double-faced neon sign for the East End Café, originally located on Eastern Avenue a mile or two from Downtown Cincinnati and along the Ohio River.  I’ve had my eye on this sign for a number of years—even before the museum existed—but the business was still in operation.  Until recently....
