Signs of The Times: Neon Parking



Here's one for you neon sign lovers. A great big, old sign for a working parking garage in grand working condition. You can see it's on in the close ups. The Starks Building itself, commissioned by John Starks Rodes, has been around at 4th and Muhammed Ali Blvd. since , oh,1913. Juts a youngster of a building. This parking garage dates from 1953 and was an early one in Louisville. It is a huge sign. Must weigh a ton.

And yes, I have parked there. Often. My dentist is in this building.
