With long, narrow glass tubes, bent into all sorts of shapes, the eye-catching colorful neon signs lit up the nights of a post-war America, especially in the early 1950s to late 1960s. Major cities and motels throughout the country had elaborate displays of neon signs which employed themes from popular culture, ranging from Western imagery of cowboys and Indians to contemporary images of spaceships.
Substituted by LEDs, today you can find them sadly despayed in museums or silently abandoned in old motels, poetry of a time that will never come back.
