Submissions: Take a Photo of Your Favorite Vintage Sign in L.A.

We received almost 250 submissions for our latest Los Angeles project. Here are the top 15. Vote for your favorite by Friday at noon.

Last week, GOOD LA and Hidden Los Angeles partnered up to ask you, Los Angeles, to show us your favorite vintage signs. You delivered, with almost 250 submissions from all over the city, from strip clubs to Scientology headquarters, Broadway theaters to Valley motels. There were crowd favorites like Felix the Cat and oddballs like Asthma Vapinese. Restaurants like Canter's, Mel's, and Randy's were all well-represented, as were both French dip rivals Philippe's and Cole's.

Now it's time to vote for a winner who will win two tickets to the Los Angeles Conservancy's "Last Remaining Seats" film series. UPDATE: The poll accidentally closed early, so we're leaving it open until 2pm! We'll announce the winner Monday morning. Thanks to all who submitted!

Project: Take a Photo of Your Favorite Vintage Sign in Los Angeles

From the marquees of Hollywood to the bodegas of East L.A, we want to see the most beautiful and bizarre vintage signs that Los Angeles has to offer.

Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs. Especially in Los Angeles. From the strobe-like marquees of Hollywood to the stenciled bodegas of East L.A., at their best our signs serve as an urban gallery of everyday art. Signs in need of saving have also been in the news a lot lately, from our story on the restoration of the Highland Theatre, to the illumination of Jensen's Recreation Center. So we're partnering with Hidden Los Angeles, which shows us the rich backstory of L.A. every single day, to find L.A.'s most interesting vintage signs.
