Like most cities Provo, Utah has a sign ordnance dictating the size and placements of advertising signs. Fortunately the Lakeside Storage Facility is either not in the city of Provo, or has an exemption as they have an amazing collection of petroliana (items relating to the gasoline industry).
We happened upon this place just after they opened their office for the day. The young lady in the office said that we could walk around all we like!
But it is not just signs they have….
There are multiple small airplanes on top of the storage units.
Most of the signs date from the 1940s through the 1970s, in various states of condition.
A few old cars and trucks are included in the collection.
They have another area across the road with more signs, but it was under construction and off limits. Still – who can resist Elvis and Marilyn on a flatbed truck outside the gate.
The Lakeside Storage and Sign Museum on the west side of Provo, Utah is one of those funky places that is a must for me!
