Epic signage for the Rite Spot Motel along the Lincoln Highway in Fayetteville, Pa. This sign reminds me of some of the finest along #route66. Keep following me for more signs and ephemera from the Lincoln Highway, which runs from Times Square to San Francisco. I’ll be exploring parts of it in the next month or so, and will then do the big stretch from Illinois to San Francisco in the early summer. As they used to say in the era when motel signs had neon TV logos, stay tuned! And scroll back on my feed or visit theretrologist.com for my Route 66 photos. #retrosigns #oldsigns #lincolnhighway #americana #roadsideamerica #rous_roadsigns #signgeeks #signstalkers #signfixation #neon #neonsign #neonporn #pennsylvania  #typography #justmytype #typevstime #signswithstars

Old school New York is alive and well at “Beer Soda” in Sunnyside, Queens. The signage is layered in retro goodness: corrugated metal, hand-painted lettering, the iconic “ice” logo, the cursive “call” inviting you to dial a number from the days when area-code specification was not required in NYC (all five boroughs were blissfully 212). #beer #soda #oldschool #justmytype #typography #typevstime #signgeeks #signhunting #signfixation #urbanexploration #urbex #rous_roadsigns #americana #roadsideamerica #queens #retrologist

A charming detail from one of my favorite vintage signs in New York: Joe Junior restaurant on Third Avenue.

La Taza de Oro (the golden cup) is a true survivor in a neighborhood that has transformed around it. Delicious Puerto Rican cuisine (what a great cafe con leche they offer, BTW) in an irreplaceable midcentury luncheonette setting. And the storefront is priceless. Near 14th and 8th in Chelsea. Go! #midcentury #puertorico #criollo #nyc #newyork #chelsea #signs #oldsigns #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #americana #oldnyc #retrologist #typography #justmytype

The WPIX archive team, always digging up fun stuff. Here’s a tiny clip from a commercial that aired during a July 1975 newscast for Independence Savings Bank, which had just dropped its South Brooklyn Savings Bank name. Peppy 1970s chorus jingle is catchy, and the voice you hear in the billboard at the end is the great WPIX announcer Bill Biery, reading live copy in the booth during the News at 10. #classictv #jingles #americana

A relic of the 1939-40 World’s Fair, the White Mana diner in Jersey City dishes sliders in a compact art-deco time machine that was once billed as the “diner of the future.” It still feels that way!
