Signs of Lynn – Proodian & Sons

  The Proodian & Sons Rugs sign on Western Ave. (Rt 107) is an art deco masterpiece in amazing condition.

Signs of Lynn – Christie’s

Facebook friends were asked to suggest this week’s sign, so Christie’s it is. It was mentioned by several people when the series launched, so today’s recommendation bumped it up in line. I took this photo in 2009 while playing with a new camera. I love classic neon. If you haven’t been by in a while,…
