amy blessing  Iowa and more ... behold the splendor captured w/ my janky S2 and an assortment of film cameras

Leonardo's killer neon. A family-owned business for over 60 years. Interior decor pure 1960s, all oversized red (p)leather booths, lots of red and black accents, a gigantic sunken bar, and super dim lighting. .

The Wilton Candy Kitchen, est.1860, closed in 2015 after the death of long time owner, George Nopolous. Last fall, the Candy Kitchen was bought by a funeral director (!) and reopened. The 157 year old business is on the National Register of Historic Places and has remained mostly unchanged through the years. Still a great place for a homemade cherry coke or a hot fudge sundae!

One of the very few remaining older neon signs in the Iowa City area. I stayed at the Capri one night, years ago, when I was in town making plans to move back to Iowa City to attend the university. The room smelled awful, so I and the friend who was with me, have since referred to it as the Catpee Lodge. In recent years the owners have rented rooms on a monthly basis and the property is for sale. .
