Cool Neon and Signage: Darby's Coffee Shop
I can't resist old neon, cool signage and other unappreciated retro art. Much in Los Angeles is threatened, endangered and too quickly torn down. I think it adds to the flavor of a neighborhood to have colorful, unique signs instead of the usual plastic. Here's a photo I took before.
Darby's Cofffee Shop HAD a cool retro teal sign with giant white scripty letters. It has now been replaced by a rather unimaginitive plastic sign.
Here is the old sign for you. You'll have to imagine it all lit up on a hot spring night.
