Welcome to my world of neon which I like to think of as the color of light. A couple of my earliest childhood memories are of driving somewhere at night and seeing these spectacular signs blazing away. Over the years I have taken phtographs and collected other images of neon. Starting in the 1980's using a Poloroid SX-70 and continuing today with my Sony HD video camera.
BUCA Restraunt off Highland at Butterfield Rd. in Lombard good eating and great neon.
KIDDYLAND; North & 1st Ave. Melrose Pk. Sadly this gem is now gone and the land is now another CostCo.
ARCHER & PULASKI (R.I.P.)
A little off the beaten track this intersection is home to these signs. The Miami bowl 72 lanes is open 24 hours. The Tangiers , Rolling Wheels & Jazzy Florist are all within a block of there. Alas since this page was put together the area has undergone redevelopment and the Miami is gone.
