Signage: City Motor Hotel

I love the 1950’s modern, space age feel of this. You can just imagine people in big convertibles with big tail fins seeing that sign and thinking it would be a swell place to spend the night. Sadly the glory days of the City Motor Motel had long passed it by, devolving into a den of crack dealing and prostitution at some stage. It was the place in the city that more police calls were sent to than any other, and the city eventually seized it. The city now owns the City.
