If you are into Googie Art, you seek out these old signs — relics of the 50s and 60s. This sign is on an old highway in Clarksville, Tennessee. The highway — 41 — was a popular route but lost favor after the interstate system came to be. The sign is 3stories tall, two sided, beautifully hand painted, and had a lot of neon lighting it up in its prime. You can just see the family station wagon on a road trip pulling in to rest for the night.
