Club 50 Cafe is along the Lincoln Highway, a boarded-up watering hole between Ely and McGill, Nevada. It’s just a beautiful little spot and I hope its future is better than its present. #lincolnhighway #nevada #roadtrip

We made it! My pals, right to left, @frankofonic, @jamshidmo and yours truly at the western terminus of the #lincolnhighway in #lincolnpark in #sanfrancisco. Our group’s drive started way back in #omaha eight days ago and also included for big stretches @albasaricaro and @sharonupdates. The Lincoln starts in Times Square and was the nation’s first transcontinental highway. I urge you to explore it — there’s so much Americana to be discovered and wonderful people to meet along the way. We’ll be doing the Omaha to New York stretch soon enough. For those who followed for retro signs, I’ll be posting many more gems so keep an eye on my feed. Thanks for the likes, support and follows over the past eight days, and if you enjoy my account, spread the word!  #signgeeks #roadsideamerica #roadtrip #americana

Our Lincoln Highway road trip is off to a good start, after visiting with this #mufflerman in North, Platte, Nebraska at the Fort Cody Trading Post. We started in Omaha, and a week from now, we’ll be in San Francisco. Follow along for roadside Americana, including some wonderful signs! (I’ll also have the story on those “color TV by RCA” signs, as told by a friendly motel proprietor.) #lincolnhighway #americangiants #nebraska #americana #roadsideamerica #rous_roadsigns #signgeeks #roadtrip #oldwest

Sears Fine Food: I’ve always loved this San Francisco neon sign. I make it a point to at least walk by each time I’m in town. And the pancakes aren’t a bad way to fuel up for urban hiking through the city. #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #americana #roadsideamerica #ipulledoverforthis #typography #typevstime #roadtrip #justmytype #fontastic #neon #neonsign #neonporn #caligrammers #california_igers #oldsigns #vintagesigns #retrosigns #justsigns #igersf #sanfran

The gorgeous space-age signage of the Astro Motel along Route 99 in Fresno is truly a sight to behold.

Southern California is a land of wonders — among them is the plethora of delicious mom-and-pop donut shops. The Donut Prince in Burbank is the perfect little breakfast spot, complete with a sign that’s worthy of a crown.  #igersla #igers_la #signgeeks #signporn #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #americana #roadsideamerica #roadtrip #neon #neonsign #neonporn #ipulledoverforthis #typography #typevstime #justmytype #fontastic #donuts #donutshop #california_igers #socal #burbank #oldsigns #vintagesigns #retrosigns

Los Angeles noir: A North Hollywood liquor sign blinks at dusk. Note the old school “shotgun style” street sign at right. LOVE those. #igersla #igers_la #signgeeks #signporn #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #americana #roadsideamerica #roadtrip #neon #neonsign #neonporn #ipulledoverforthis #typography #typevstime #justmytype #fontastic #liquor #signsthatblink

How cool would it be for this place to be your neighborhood diner? Frank’s Restaurant is in Burbank, where folks have no shortage of retro dining options. #igersla #igers_la #signgeeks #signporn #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #americana #roadsideamerica #roadtrip  #ipulledoverforthis #typography #typevstime #justmytype #fontastic #greasyspoon #california_igers #diners #restaurants #coffeeshops #pies

Time to post the donuts! Randy’s Donuts never disappoints, be it the sweets or the sign. It’s an icon of LA and really of America. #randysdonuts #donuts #roadsideamerica #americana  #igersla #igers_la #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #americana #roadsideamerica #roadtrip #ipulledoverforthis #typography #typevstime #justmytype #fontastic #california_igers

Breakfast at #googie masterpiece Pann’s,  near #LAX, where this adventure must alas come to an end. Really enjoyed my 10 days on the road in California. Many more photos coming soon on my Instagram feed and theretrologist.com. (Oh, and if you’ve never been to Pann’s, go! Serving comfort food in an intact #midcentury environment since 1958.) #igersla #igers_la #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #retrologist #americana #roadsideamerica #roadtrip #neon #neonsign #neonporn #ipulledoverforthis #typography #typevstime #justmytype #fontastic #diners #1950s #oldschool #retrolicious #architecture
