Neon City Lights

Apparently neon lights were great for cities in the 1950’s. Take Vancouver for example: The company Neon Products Ltd., located in the city, estimated that Vancouver had the second-most neon signs per capita on the globe, after Shanghai.

In this beautiful article by Rebecca Onion for Slate, you can read about the sad disappearance of neon lights from our cities and look at some amazing photos from Vancouver.

Don’t forget to also have a look at Vancouver’s Public Library Flickr set with even more Vancouver neon noir!
