    Having grown up in the fifties, I remember well those neon signs and it always takes me back to my early years, whenever I see them.

    This one is in Marysville, CA:

    This one always makes me smile, because it may have been "modern" in the thirties, but now it's vintage:

    in the California bay area (Palo Alto, I think):

    Sonora, CA. I get a laugh out of a bar that sells guns and ammo:

    I've always loved old neon signs and I'm glad to see them making a slow comeback. No modern signs will catch your attention like these signs used to.

  13. This is an interesting old neon sign a facebook friend of mine posted the other day. She lives in Oregon so I think that's probably where she found it . . . I believe there may be a hidden message in there somewhere.

    The Beach Hill Court sign is fantastic! Would love to have seen it in its glory days.

    Me too! I expected to see Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway to come strolling out.

    Sorry for the crappy drive-by pic, it's in a part of town where you don't really want to get out of the car these days.
