Neon Crush

I have developed quite the fascination with neon signs. It started back in the spring when I read about a local neon sign landmark that was facing an uncertain future. The store that the sign had been in front of since the '50s was closing, but the sign couldn't be moved to one of the other stores in the chain because it couldn't meet the zoning requirements of the other locations. I went and took some photos of it just in case it went away for good. Luckily that story has a happy ending in that the city in which one of the other stores is located passed a zoning variance allowing the sign to be relocated there.

In any case, I really enjoyed the photos of the sign, and it made me look for other interesting pieces of neon. And there are a lot!

The rest of these images have nothing to do with the Sigel's sign, they're just cool neon signs!
