Holiday Inn
Anuncio luminoso.

A great iconic sign.  In 1962 you would have seen this at about 400 locations across the USA.  A good short history of the company is at http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/wooda/motel/holiday/index.html .

Downtown Alpena, Michigan, ca. 1965-1975 (via Seeking Michigan)

Just about the way it would have looked in 1962, when Roadtrip-‘62 rolled through Alpena.

Now that’s 1962!  Not only could you advertise a car showing someone drinking milk, (perhaps soothing his hangover?) but those morning milk delivery men are now long gone.
