Vintage neon sign for Larry's Mexican Restaurant in Richmond, Texas

Now THIS is interesting: One of the vintage neon signs for Larry's Mexican Restaurant -- which opened in Richmond, Texas, in 1960 -- is very similar to the now-gone sign for the now-closed Felix Restaurant, which was located approximately 30 miles away in central Houston.

 

To compare the two signs, here's a 2011 shot of the Felix sign: www.flickr.com/photos/mollyblock/5842544499/in/set-721576...

 

Also: A photo of Larry's restaurant's *other* vintage neon sign is here: www.flickr.com/photos/mollyblock/7687794122/in/photostream
