I thought these were interesting enough to show here.

Every once in a while, I'll spot an old Norge Laundromat sign like this!

Roadside,

There used to be a Norge Village next to the old Red Rock Theatres and the now gone Rice Paddy Bar. About all that remains of the original businesses around there are the West Hills Barber and the Pool Supply company.

I love the Mars Auto Supply ad.

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.

Mackeral! Those images are fantastic.

I recently picked up a slender 67-8 West LA "Red Book" and was disappointed that there were no building or sign illustrations inside...but there were bunches of little spot drawings like this fellow:

...I included that part on the far left because I thought it interesting that after nearly a decade of 7-digit "officialdom," some folks held on to their EXchanges...

(Also...while I fight for the 76 orbs, and fret over the fate of our original KFC buckets, I still consider Norge Balls easily the most smile-producing signs on our landscape.)

Great find, Synthetrix! I hadn't seen that card before.
