Someday, your Prince’s (hamburgers sign) will go. If you hail from the kingdom of the Heights, today appears to be that day. Swamplot reader Rachelle Varnon sends in the above photo, taken just a short while ago, of the old N. Shepherd Prince’s Hamburgers sign as it sits, mounted on a royal coach for a northern journey. “I saw a bucket truck by the old sign [pictured at left] at 15th and North Shepherd today on my way to lunch,” she writes. “By the time we returned, the sign was down.“
Where’s it headed?
“The man that was removing it said he was contracted by The National Save the Neon Signs Museum in Minot, North Dakota to remove it and that it would end up there,” Varnon continues. “I was happy it was not being destroyed, but sad that it’s leaving the neighborhood.”
A new sign has taken its place on the property, but there are no buzzing lights attached:
