Leeward Motel Sign on Biscayne Blvd in Miami, Florida

The colors on this Leeward Motel sign are phenomenal--robin's egg blue and yellow, so mid-century.

The motel sign (vintage motel signs framed prints) is a dying breed. Few motel signs of the mid-century remain. When a photographer spots one, he/she snaps away.

The motel sign has become somewhat of a tourist attraction in the United States. Check out Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood and you'll see one motel sign after another on the median strip.
