SILVER LAKE — A reader snapped a photo as the final pieces of the neon Sun Lake Drugs sign was being removed today. The sign at the southeast the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Parkman Avenue is going to be replaced by signage for the building’s new tenant:  Floyd’s 99 Barbershop

Earlier this year,  the co-owner of the building said that the lease requires Floyd’s to preserve the old sign but not keep it in the same location.  “I don’t think the ‘drug’ sign will fit with Floyd‘s 99 logo,” said the co-owner in an email. “However, we wanted to be sure that the sign would not be demolished and would be carefully removed for us to store elsewhere.”

Update: The sign has been donated to the Museum of Neon Art in Glendale, museum director Kim Koga said in an email. “We will be displaying a portion of it for the next exhibition that will open in July.”
