Marshall Hotel sign - Marshall, MN
from flickr user roadsidenut
Where have all of the cool signs - like this one for the Marshall Hotel in Marshall, Minnesota - gone? This neon on aluminum hotel sign looks like it has beckoned weary travelers since maybe the 1940s (or before) and is in remarkably good condition unlike the actual Marshall Hotel which has been vacant for years.

On a side note you have to check out the photographer's blog. Having spent thousands of miles on a trip capturing unique and historic signage and roadside scenes from a bygone era you should probably leave a comment of appreciation for the hard work of this photographer.
