Long Description:
This neon sign saw an incredible amount of local history. Many of the historic features around where it hang for at least half-a-century are gone, such as the Vancouver & Lulu Island Railway just metres away.

When the Magee Grocery was demolished for the new condo development the builder retained this gorgeous sign and it now hangs in the stairwell from the parkade to Save-on Foods.
