Retro cleaners. Note the "Car Hop Service."


Bambi. This Bambi sign is a classic. It taken some 15 years ago. It's the original sign. The "Cleaners" part of the sign has been replaced.

Gee, I don't think that motel sign would lure me in. However, it is beautiful in its own way. It was taken in Desert Hot Springs, California.

Bow and Arrow Motel the Way It Used to Be

This was photographed when the sign was at the Bow and Arrow Motel downtown a few years ago. That motel is no longer there. The sign has been refurbished and placed on Las Vegas, Blvd.
