"Bea Haverfield Sketches" - Bea went on to create many of the iconic neon signs dotting the Seattle skyline. Her work symbolizes the area's post-war boom. She helped designed signs from toy stores to pharmacies - many which have gone out of business. Her works include Dick's Drive In and Ivar's.

One of the most famous works she created was designing a sign for a local car wash - Elephant Car Wash. The company wanted a sign that was both "spectacular and memorable" for those passing by. She created one of her most memorable designs.
