Interstate Avenue

The vintage signage along Interstate is awesome, however quickly disappearing. The Atomic Age Alliance is a group dedicated to preserving examples of 50's/60's architecture in Portland. They're currently working on finding a new home for the Crown Motel sign, the site scheduled for demolition in March. I really want that 80's HBO sign that still hangs in the front window of the motel office.
The folks at The Orange Door have an awesome photo post of the motel and other signage of Interstate Avenue. North to South, and then back up the other side. Thanks guys! This is awesome.
