And here's the flip side ~

Yesterday you saw one side of this great neon sign; here's the flip side. Dirk Arnold, the artist, really captures the flavor of the heyday of the neon sign as a tourist attraction. This big cactus is a fun beacon on Oracle Road at Drachman (where the roundabout was).


  1. Thank you so much for the work you do on this site, love it. The pics and trivia are fantastic. I wandered down to Tucson from Alaska this past winter for the first- it surely wont be the last. I love the sense of community and the history of the place.

  2. WOW - a long distance follower, for sure! Thanks for your comment and I am so glad that you enjoy the site. My off-site address is TucsonDailyPhoto@gmail.com if you would like to write and tell me what you saw, did, enjoyed in Tucson. It may give me some photo ideas! Thanks!!

  3. I saw this for the first time yesterday, a couple hours before running into you.
