Bowl Sign--Tall...Tall...Tall


Tall...tall...tall.

They just don't make them this tall anymore. Height used to be an important sign trait in most locations in the United States, except some of the places where there are a lot of hurricanes.

 Tall signs are grand, rising into the sky as if they were catching a bit of heaven. This "bowl" sign was taken in Southern California and still is there, unusual for such a big piece of neon.

The steel in this sign is classic as are the letters at the end of each soaring pole. I have several versions of this bowl sign and a few others like it-long live steel and neon.
