This is a longtime Maryland Fried Chicken location on N. Slappey Blvd in Albany, GA.  The current owner has decked the place inside and out in a "hippy" fashion.  We have 3 Maryland chains in Albany, but this one is very unique. 09-06

This is a vintage Arby's sign in Louisville, KY. It is in great shape and is one of many neon signs in the St. Matthews area. Unfortunately, a new Arby's is being built down the street, and the fate of this sign is uncertain. 12-06

Here's the eye-catcher of a neon sign from the LaPlace Frostop located about 30 miles from New Orleans, Louisiana.  The LaPlace Frostop has been in business since 1958.  The neon mug has four different neon colors (blue, red, white, and green).  The mug still turns!!. Many thanks to Terry Toler, owner of the LaPlace Frostop for photo and info. 02-07
