    This is a vintage marquee sign from what used to be the Lyric movie theater in Lapeer. The theater was built in the 1920's and closed down in the 1970's. It at first only ran silent films of course, but in 1928 it began to run the new "talkies". From what I could gather, it became a mall of some sort. I found this in an antique store (Past Tense) /Cider Mill hanging above the doorway and I thought it was cool ....even though all the lights were out of it :) I have a few more of these vintage signs to post later on!

      It almost looks like an old railroad sign. Very cool.

      Thanks Greg....yeah, although I think it is still around, I saw a picture of it and it is really unimpressive now.
