September 9, 2010Vintage Neon Signs Part 2
OK y’all here are the last few pictures of my beloved neon signs! I hope y’all enjoy.
First is the Kiva Lodge Motel. The Indian with his big Headdress is so awesome. And, just so y’all know – the motel is refrigerated!
I had to include this next neon sign, even though it is actually located in Denver. I took this picture about 4 years ago while we were there visiting family. Unfortunately, I had to take the picture from the car window while we were driving. But, it is the “Big Bunny” Motel – what is not to love about a sign with a big bunny!!! Sorry the angle is not better on this shot.
The next sign is for the Buckhorn Baths. This is a Motel AND you could also get a bath in the natural hot springs too. It is a very sweet little place, with cute cottages you could rent out. Unfortunately, the are closed until further notice. I believe they are trying to sell the Baths, but hoping to sell to someone who will refurbish the place and open it back up. If I remember right, they opened in the late 1940s.
Next up is a special sign just for you Miss Eartha.
Well Giddy Up Pardner, it’s time for a stay at the Circle RB Guest Lodge! I absolutely love the cute kitschy cowboy theme on this old sign!
And lastly, The Starlite Motel sign. Isn’t this sign the bomb with the diving ladies! I am so totally in love with this sign. I think if they ever want to tear it down I will get it from them and set it up in my front yard.
I don’t think my neighbors would mind at all, do you? 🙂
Well, I hope y’all enjoyed my tour of old neon signs around town. If I see any more I will be sure to snap some pics for y’all.
If anyone out there has a cool neon sign they want to share, be sure to send in a picture so we can all check it out!
