  1. In photos: Edmonton's Neon Light Museum

    Sunday, February 23, 2014

    On Friday night, as part of the celebrating my new job, Ian and my friend Heather took me out for dinner and to the launch of Edmonton's Neon Sign Museum.


    The museum is a collection of restored vintage signs from Edmonton's neon age, all installed outside the Telus building at the corner of 104 Ave and 104 Street. While only eight are up right now, there will be 12 (or hopefully even more!) in the future.






    It's such an innovative use of spacing on an otherwise unremarkable building (sorry Telus), in one of Edmonton's up-and-coming historical neighbourhoods, and will hopefully inspire new neon ventures in the future.

      That is so cool! I like the Toronto Star image with the man reading the paper.
