It was actually on a recommendation that I decided to go and photograph some of these overlooked highway landmarks from the 1950s and 1960s. I shot these images at the Ranchmen Motel, Bel Aire Motel, Rancho Motel, Hat Motel, and Satellite Motel. There are more in the area, but these five had the best neon signs in my opinion.
