This Pool Lamp is one of many that once surrounded a pool in a
Mobile Home park in Tucson, AZ. What an interesting looking lamp.

Here's the marquee next to the motel office for the Starlite
Motel in Mesa, Arizona. At this property right off the roadside,
there are not just one but two fancy marquees.
The swimmers (right) even still light up at night as the animated neon
gives the impression of the swimmer diving off the top of the sign.
UPDATE 10/10 : The Starlite Motel lost its animated neon diver sign in a thunderstorm on October 5. According to the Arizona Republic, the 50 year old sign was destroyed when a powerful wind gust sheared off a metal pole support. The motel owner states the sign most likely will not be replaced due to funds required and Mesa's sign ordinance. Another roadside treasure has become just a memory.
More photos coming soon. Many thanks to Sarah Moore for news alert. 10-10

Well, the El Rancho Motel may still be in business but this one

The marquee still stands.

Check out the marquee for the Boots & Saddle Motel.
The motel was built several decades ago in 1954. Not sure if the sign dates back from then as well. 06-03
