Putting back the neon November 29, 2007

Posted by Ron Warnick in History, Motels, People, Signs.

Dwayne of New Zealand posted a bunch of videos weeks ago from his summer Route 66 trip, but I missed this one.

Here, he talks to Bill Kinder, co-owner of the Blue Swallow Motel in Tucumcari, N.M., as he’s about to install new neon lighting in July. The previous neon was destroyed by a severe hailstorm last spring.

Kinder also provides a number of interesting historical tidbits as he works.
