Ghost Sign Near North Station

Ghost Sign Near North Station

I don’t know what this ghost sign said, besides “IAN, DOW & CO.” It seems likely that we’re missing some text from the beginning.

Landry’s

Landry's

It’s meant to look like a theater, but it’s a restaurant, on the Kemah (Texas) boardwalk. Kemah is on Galveston Bay, southeast of Houston.

Frontier

Frontier

One of the best signs on the strip. They just took down the Stardust — will the Frontier be next? It’s one of the last of the classic old casinos left.

All Trespassing Will Be Prosescuted

At the summit of Horn Pond Mountain, there is a fence which surrounds some sort of small abandoned quarry or pit. I love the way this sign looks with the color saturation cranked way up.

The Battle Green Inn, in Lexington center, will be torn down soon to make way for some condos. Few will miss it, but it does provide one of the few interesting neon signs in Lexington.

Condon’s Garage

At Buck’s Harbor, there really is (still) a Condon’s Garage. In fact it looks a lot like the drawing in Robert McCloskey‘s wonderful , though Dick Condon passed away in 1987. Cousins Phillip Condon and Donald Condon run the place now.
