I found this one in a weed-covered, cracked cement parking lot, behind a row of abandoned commercial buildings, in a "rough" part of Houston, while looking for a totally different sign (which was gone). The font on this one caught my eye.
In the town where my mom and dad met during high school. This building burned to the ground about a year and a half ago, along with the sign (I'm assuming).
The owner came out while I was taking this picture and told me the sign was for sale ($5,000). According to her, it still lit up, but the wires smoked after it'd been on for a while. She told me it was from the '40s. Someone must have taken her up on the offer, because the sign is no longer there.
Get out of here! Television and air conditioning?? Oh, the marvels of the modern age. Will the wonders never cease?
