Thanks, Vintage Roadside, for turning me onto this refurbished neon sign!


I stood as far as I could from the north side of the sign, out of the overhanging tree limbs filled with leaves, and took this photo on Tuesday night at 7:29 p.m., with a Nikon D5100. I don't have a tripod; the photo is a bit tilted down to the right. Gorgeous paint job and fully functional neon. Hooray! Thanks, Palms! See below for almost the same shot, before darkness had arrived.

Here's the south side of the sign. I walked up onto the landing of some wrought iron stairs. I'm afraid of heights and couldn't get myself to go up one more flight. Maybe next time. Took this one at 7:32 p.m. with the D5100. Too bad the leaves cover the capital L a little bit.


I took this one at 6:31 p.m., with the D5100. You can really tell how swell the paint looks.


Here's the south side of the sign, taken from underneath the wrought iron stairs, at 6:29 p.m. with the D5100.


I took this one from the window of a Zipcar which I had driven into the parking lot and put into park, at 9:36 p.m. on May 16, 2010, with a Nikon D50. It's easy to see the spotty paint and neon.

So American to me, Lynette. And, in this case good enough for Las Vegas. Super shots. Seen nothing like this here in England.

What a sign! Is Vegas missing some neon?

I love these too. Nice find Lynette.


A perfect blast from the past. As a Zipcar driver myself, this is one of the best uses of a Zipcar car I've seen!
