I did not see any Flicker photos of Franklin, TX or Beeville. I may be involved in the restoration of the Lufkin Pines Theater. Maybe we will get you some more neon.
Terminaly bored in Lufkin.

I haven't spent a lot of time in that part of the state quite yet. Someday!

I wish you the very best of luck with the Pines' restoration! It's a beautiful facade and sign. It would be awesome to see it lit again.
