1045 Hillsborough Ave ,
Seminole Heights Map
This Dairy Queen was located on East Hillsborough Ave between Nebraska and 15th Street in Seminole Heights. The historic photo was taken in 1959 by the Cinchett Neon Sign Company for the neon sign they built and installed on the roof. This building and sign was very similar to another location located on Nebraska Avenue in Sulphur Springs. The building pictured here still stands today, and the sign also has survived although it has modified for the Sooo Good Southern Bar-B-Que restaurant that now occupies the building.
You can see read more about Tampa’s neon signs in the book Vintage Tampa Signs and Scenes.
