Neon signage southeast

 

Cosmorama

Here is a neon sign for the Cosmorama that is a real eye catcher located in a small shopping center on Park Avenue. The two blue rings revolve around the ball at the top of the sign. It's only been in place for a few years, but it's a fascinating reminder of the more elaborate neon signs of years gone by. 07-06

A revolving spiked neon ball that has been a fixture in front of Joe's Liquor Store for more years than I can remember.

(Far right) A close-up of the neon rotosphere

It apparently got it's nickname from the Russian space shuttle. Cybil Shepherd even references it in her autobiography, "Cybil Disobedience." 07-06

This skunk holds the bouquet on this sign for Pugh's Flowers. Let's see... skunk... Pugh's. I get it. 09-06

Not sure if the name of this liquor store is really Blue 4 Liquor or not.  The arrow moves down and the rings on top spin around.  09-06

Well, this torso suspended off the roadside is strange enough to see in the daytime, but it is somewhat disturbing to see at night. Happy Day Cleaners is found off the highway in Elvis Presley's hometown of Memphis, TN. 09-06

The Fox Meadow Liquors is located in the Fox Meadows area of Memphis.  The "Fox" lettering is burned out in the sign. 09-06
