These four signs were found along Hwy 395, in the Pleasant Valley, on the way to Reno. They advertised the Merry Wink Motel, which was located 4 miles ahead. These Burma Shave-style signs lasted by the highway for many years, long after the motel itself had stopped catering to sleepy drivers. The motel still exists in south Reno, serving as low-income housing. The signs disappeared quite a while ago.
