The Neon Sign Begins Its Journey!
About a decade ago the neon UPTOWN sign was taken down, and it has been stored ever since in a city-owned building.
It was high up and hard to see in storage.
But today it was brought down to ground level!
From what we can tell, the sign was black with red letters, and yellow flourishes! Normally, neon is the same color as the underlying letters, so it is likely that the neon gas was red.
The sign is to be professionally sprayed with auto body paint. Then the plans are for it to go to Coffelt Signs in Emporia to be fitted for neon!!!!!!!!
