Long Description:
?Harold and Clarence Wood founded Wood Brothers - H & C Coffee Company in Roanoke, Virginia. During the war years of the 40’s, Harold made a trip to New York and was impressed by the neon signage used in advertising. Upon his return to Roanoke, he enlisted the help of a local sign company to design and install the “H&C Coffee” sign on top of the roasting plant located on east Campbell Avenue. The sign remained there until the mid 60’s at which time the plant was torn down. The famous sign was relocated to its current location atop the building on Salem Avenue and it has been classified as a Historical Landmark.
