Image of S. Bowell and Sons Funeral Directors Neon Sign

Seen here in 1953 in the far background of the photo, S. Bowell and Sons Funeral Directors is still operating today, now at 219 6th Street in New Westminster.

Bowell and Sons' 1940s sign was designed to be installed in a window rather than outdoors. An indoor sign was a less expensive option for businesses seeking to capitalize on neon's eye-catching appeal.
