Vista Theater - since 1923!

I'm very excited for the opening of our new attraction: Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout! Congratulations to our entire team! 👏🏼

From the archives: the old Starlet Apartments sign in disrepair a few years ago. I'm happy to report that the apartments and the sign have been beautifully restored!

The rooftop neon above the old Seeley's Furniture Store - now repurposed as small stores and studios in Glendale, California.

There are still a few motels in Anaheim that harken back to 50's and 60's - when Disneyland was new and the surrounding motels wanted to embrace the same notion of theming - especially in their signage.

I need coffee! ☕️ Happy Thursday!

I tried for an edit that fit the sign!

Happy Monday!

There are still corset shops around! This one with the beautiful neon sign is in Glendale, California!

The old Seeley's furniture store is a great example of adaptive reuse architecture. It inspired me to experiment with another vintage postcard edit.

Sometimes you go sign hunting with friends and someone in the car says, "what was that?" And you turn around, get out of the car, cross railroad tracks and pull back a chain link fence to see a wonderful old hotel sign someone rescued! Let's hope it's being restored! I'd love to see what this looks like with neon! Thanks @retromike for your good 👀!
