Read about them:
“Let There Be Neon has been the preeminent international supplier and creator of Custom Neon for signage and artistic applications.
Although neon is thought of as quintessentially American, it was a Frenchman (Georges Claude) who introduced the first neon sign, circa 1910.
Before long, a giant white ‘Cinzano’ advertisement was illuminating Paris, ‘The City of Light’. Neon made its American debut in 1923, with a sign above a Packard car showroom in Los Angeles.
Although minimal by current standards, it did what it was supposed to do: stop traffic. Neon took off with the 1933 repeal of prohibition, which created a need for eye-catching signs above bars.
Plus, in the 1930’s and 1940’s, neon became synonymous with Art Deco and the dreamily sinister look of film noir.
So, by the 50’s, neon had become inextricably linked with drive-ins, diners, the glamour of Las Vegas and by extension, the American dream itself.
Although cheap fluorescent and plastic signs in the late 50′s temporarily displaced this burst of neon creativity, today the vibrant colored light has once again regained its rightful place on the international landscape.”
