While this photograph is from almost three years ago, it is a new post from the esteemed Mr. Escobedo. Apparently, he has heard news that this great googie sign is about to be torn down. Even with the two areas covered in white that never had their original portions replaced (the upper being a neon "MOTEL" and the lower being a letter board), it would be a shame if this sign was removed from the wild where it truly belongs.
