Roadside Relics of the Phoenix Metro Area

Roadside Relics of the Phoenix Metro Area. Vintage Neon Sign Photography by Jim Hale

"In the late 40s, the booming post-war tourist trade gave Phoenix the title,“Motel Capital of the World.” A lot of the signs in this exhibition date to the era, though some are newer 60s vintage signs. Artisans and manufacturers like Young Electric Sign Co., Bud Johnson and Guerrero-Lindsey in Mesa crafted many of these beautiful neon art pieces seen throughout our area."
