Neon Kingsport - Photos Courtesy of Worley Lane

Worley Lane worked for Kingsport Sign Company for more than 40 years. These are from his slide collection.

This great neon sign was for a motel on the other side of Rogersville.

Two Kingsport institutions.

A Kingsport flower shop with a great neon sign.

Piggly Wiggly was for a time one of the few places in town that sold beer. Note all the cars.

Hey Estes Kefauver! Move so we can see the Peggy Ann. From the 1955 4th of July Parade.

First it was the Beacon Drive In. Then it was Trayer's. And then it was the Fountain Bleu.

Did you lose weight at Figurama? Did you keep it off?

Market Street after dark. Note the old Times News neon sign with a clock above it.

A-Hood Bonding uses Neon sign for it's business located at 150 Clay St. across from the Kingsport City Jail, a welcome sight if you happen to be riding in the back of a Kingsport Police cruiser.
