Arby’s is Delicious … the video! (One of many reasons to love the San Fernando Valley.) #signgeeks #neon #neonsigns #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #retrosigns #arbys #arbyssignisdelicious #midcentury #california_igers #california #sanfernandovalley #ig_signage #igsignage

Arby’s Is Delicious — and you know what else is? This sign! It’s in Mission Hills, California, on a stretch of street that includes a KFC bucket. It’s always great to find an original illuminated Arby’s neon-lightbulb 1960s extravaganza. Shine on! #arbys #roastbeef #signgeeks #signjunkies #signfixation #rous_roadsigns #roadsideamerica #americana #neonsigns #neonporn #neon @arbys

Farnesi’s, an icon of the drive south along Route 99 in Madera, California. The sign has been restored (based on some photos I found online) but it’s still a vintage treat. The details are a delight: the cocktail symbol on the left, the motel lettering studded with starbursts.  #ipulledoverforit #signgeeks #typography #typevstime #justmytype #americana #rous_roadsigns #route99 #roadsideamerica #googie #sputnik #neon #neonsign #neonporn

The Bay Area has a number of these psychedelic 7 Up privilege signs from the 1960s and 70s. This gem, along with an awesome neon “casino” sign, is in charming Bodega, California. #7up #casino #neon #neonporn #bodega #california #signporn #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #retrosigns #neon #vintageneon #americana #roadsideamerica

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

You could be forgiven for thinking the signage at Desmond’s Steakhouse has been around for years, but it’s actually brand new. It replaced the iconic neon lights of the OTB Winner’s Circle, that survivor of a grittier New York where horse-race gambling parlors were dotted with Oscar Madison clones. Be that as it may, Desmond’s has come up with a set of impressive neo-retro signs that left me impressed and encouraged — encouraged because this was a real effort to create signage that makes a retro-flavored statement. Inventive signage was once almost universal in New York — today, we are confronted with the unstoppable scourge of bland vinyl awnings and other affronts to interesting street life. #nyc #newyorkcity #timessquare #steakhouse #neonsign #neon #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #neoretro

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!

Ballantine beer and its iconic three-ring logo — “the crisp refresher” as the 1960s jingle went. This ghost brand was a household name once, as this #neonsign in #SoHo reminds us.  #neon #beer #ig_signage #ig_beer #signgeeks #signporn #signswithcircles #retrologist #retrosigns #rous_roadsigns
