Lost City: New Haven Edition: Two Good Signs

Kebabian on Elm Street contends it has been there since 1882, though I'm guessing the sign came in during the 1930s. What is it about New Haven's utilization of great signage to proclaim humdrum businesses?

The Pizza House, meanwhile, is a bit west of the center of town on a fairly quiet corner. They've been doling out pie since 1963. There's a long lunch counter inside, but no one sits there, except to wait for their take-out order. They cut their pizza in squares, not slices, and make toasted grinders, too.
