Powell Villa is on SE 122nd and Powell in Portland. The sign is actually a combination of Neon and backlighting but it is so cool I just had to post it anyway.

Me too! I found out about it by chance while researching things to do while visiting Silverton,OR to see the Gorden House, the only FL Wright house in Oregon. They are within 5 miles of one another.

Wow! I have a Norge sign with the polka dots just a few miles away from me. The building is something else now I think but I LOVE the sign. Thanks for posting these, now I know what that building used to be. I will take a photo and post it here soon.

I love mine! Although my oven and cooktop are two separate things. We even got all of the rotisserie accoutrements and brochures from the original owner! I wish I had better photos but here it is when we first moved in 3 years ago. http://i10.tinypic.com/2j4yskp.jpg http://i10.tinypic.com/2m7aq6d.jp...

We bought our first home 3 years ago and literally stumbled onto a pristine 1960 MCM Ranch that was FSBO and had been sitting for months. We got it for bel...
