Duluth Master Bread & Arco Billboards

Back in December, the subject of the old Master Bread billboard came up in the thread about the Peerless Auto Body fire.

I’m guessing that’s the reason this showed up in my e-mail:

Does anyone know where the Master Bread billboard with the moving slices of bread coming out of the package ended up? Or, the Arco Coffee billboard with the steaming coffee being poured into the pot?

The e-mail is from former Duluthian Wayne L. Anderson.

Is anyone out there holding on to these collector’s items, or can someone confirm they were destroyed?

That's a great photo, notice Emerson school in the right-hand background?

Though I mat be mistaken, that may be the MN Power substation on W. Superior a little further back. Any Info? Looks to me like It was taken from the West End side of point of rocks.
