OH, Eaton-U.S. 127 St. Clair Sleeping Rooms Neon Sign

This is one of those signs that when I run across them I have to think it is a one of a kind in this day and age. Back in the days before motels there were these places and rooming houses for people to stay in. I imagine even back then they were aimed toward the long term tenant. I watched "The Day the Earth Stood Still" again last week where Klatu sought out a rooming house to stay. It even had a lit sign on the outside. I really hope this continues to be a part of the Eaton roadside, but its position of only being 6-7 feet off the sidewalk is surely tempting to those less enthused about enjoying a neat neon sign.
