Chances are pretty good you recognize this sign. Even through raindrops on a car window. That’s what it looked like when I stopped by Sigel’s on Greenville Avenue today. This is what it looked like when I got back to my car.

See it moving — flashing and bubbling — in a YouTube video, here.

I wrote about this Sigel’s sign in the 2017 post “Historic Neon: The Super-Cool Sigel’s Sign.” Click the link to read about the man behind this fabulous sign, Marvin Sigel, who died in 2019 at the age of 87 (his obituary is here). After I wrote the piece linked above, I received a very nice message from Marvin’s son, David, who told me that Marvin liked the post and was delighted to know how much his work was appreciated.

And it still is! Thank you, Marvin!
