Signs around town

I had so much fun with the "Doors Around Town" post  that this week I thought to take pictures of my favorite old advertising signage around town.  The locations of the first two are blindingly obvious.


Exposed by a fire.

Along a rail line.

But the first two were just bait to show off my favorite in the town.  Does anyone else know where it is?  I love that it is SO hidden *in PLAIN sight* that I just saw it last summer and my father, a serious local historian, had no idea what I was talking about.  Honestly, he can identify any location from a 100 yr old photo and didn't know what this was:

That building is smiling.  Let's look closer:

Do any of my local friends know where this is?

Hint #1: You are usually driving past this building at about 45 MPH.
Hint #2:  Located in the old village of Shenango.  Which back in the day had its very own train depot but now has been reduced to a place people speed through on their way to somewhere else that is more important.

Anyone want to play?  Where have I been lately?
