Navajo Lodge Neon Sign Endures in Prescott.

We were in one of Prescott's abundantly fascinating antiques shops the other day.  Arriving at check-out we were stopped in our tracks … ooohing and aaahing over this extraordinary neon sign.

Store proprieter, lower left in this pic, explains that the old Navajo Lodge went out of business 20+ years ago.  During tear down the "branding" sign miraculously survived.  Our new BFF explains that virtually all the neon tubes remained intact;  new sign owner did minimal repair.

Visitors from all over the world have asked to buy the sign. "Not for sale," is the answer.  "Unless you want to buy the entire building and the business!"
