Signs of Nostalgia

image

These signs have sat atop buildings in downtown Roanoke since I was a child. Not so long ago, I took this picture through the window as I sat in the passenger seat of a moving car. That’s why I managed to cut off part of the H&C coffee sign. At least I got most of it along with the full Dr. Pepper bottle top sign!

When I was a child, I loved seeing these neon signs lit up against the night sky. It was a treat of sorts when my dad would drive us past these local landmarks. It was a simple pleasure, and unforgettable.

Even now, whenever I spot the signs, I am reminded of how much I loved these special signs as a kid. I guess I still do!

  1. I do love the coffee sign. It still lights up?

  2. I feel a little nostalgic just looking at the photograph and I’ve never even been there! 🙂
