Not much is known of this travelling neon salesman’s case, other than it’s beautiful and would have no doubt attracted scores of customers. It belonged to a company salesman for Dorwalt Signs in Pennsylvania and dates from 1935.
As you probably already know, I am obssessed with neon, having written about Neon Art and Loneliness in the past, announcing the unexpected beauty of lonely neon signs on the rainy London cityscape. Also another story about how old powerplants can be turned into surreal wonderlands through the use of neon in the Most Beautiful Relics From The Industrial Dawn. And also how a medieval church can become born again into a laser paradise in Churches, Wildflowers, Weeds and Wonder.
