Photo of the Week - January 2, 2012

Happy New Year everyone. I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2012.

About a month ago, on our way back from a few days up in Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur, we drove by a very run down old cafe next to the highway. The original builders had decided to incorporate two old trolley cars as book ends to the main portion of the building. It obviously hadn't been used in decades for any kind of a going business..........just the kind of thing I love to take pictures of!!!!

This image is of the old neon sign that sits on top of the roof of the cafe. The printing on the sign is very faded and is kind of hard to see, but the sign reads "Cafe - Dining Cars". Some of the old neon tubes were still there, and I imagine that back in the 1950's this sign "Glowed" at night, since there really wasn't anything else near it.

If you would like to purchase a print of this image (edition of 50), or would like to see others in my "Photo of the Week" series, click HERE.
