Signs of the times: Tucson, Arizona's Mid-century Neon








On our way to finding a celebrated Tucson muffler man (watch for a future post), we passed by some eye-popping mid-century signage. The North Stone area of town must have been a swingin' place, Daddio, back in the early 60s, if the remaining signs are any indication. It's always fun to stumble across living bygone road history, when a sign wasn't a sign unless it was neon, buzzing and huge.

I always wonder whether neon signs aren't better during the day...

Thanks for documenting this stuff, and in my opinion, your photography just keeps getting better.
