Cowboy sign. Large John Wayne Figure-Sign

Originally constructed in 1954 and originally located west approx. 1/4 mile and across the street from current location. Moved to current location in 1960 to newly built Stewarts's Market. Constructed of Marine plywood attached to metal frame work. Supported by two old light poles. Re-surfaced (over existing plywood) with lexan-type covering in 1992 under new store ownership. Addition of face "similar" to John Wayne is more recent.

John Wayne sign. Large John Wayne Figure

A large John Wayne figure stands watch at the sign to the entrance of Red Apple Market on Hwy 730 in Umatilla, OR. I'd guess it is at least 20 feet tall.

The Duke is a flat metal cutout-style sign, but we like his out-of-whack limbs and body.
