Old Motel Signs :: 09.29.02 :: california : old signs : pencam :

Just two of the several cool old motel signs that flank both sides of Monterey Highway as it comes into downtown San Jose. I took a bike ride this afternoon down there - usually I am in the car and in a hurry - but today I decided to ride down and snap a couple of pics. There are lots more - for those kind of drive in motels that became popular in the 1950's. A couple even have little carports next to each room.

around town, not far from where i live are a ton of signs sporting neon and interesting typography. most of these seem to be older signs from the 50s or 60s and are still in use today. i haven't been by at night to know if the neon is still being used. there are more out there - san jose seems to be a mecca for this type of sign and hasn't been "upgraded" yet. these are a few captured with the new digital camera and experiementing with the in camera saturation.
