Helen's - Swinging Neon!

Helen's Children's Wear

4142 Hastings Street

Burnaby, BC V5C 2J4, Canada


This is isn't my camera work but a composite I made from SqueakyMarmot's snapshots of this amazing swinging sign in Vancouver.


Squeaky Marmot's orginal Helen sign 1 and Helen Sign 2


I couldn't wait to see them blended together to recreate the sign in motion.

We've all seen neon that moved (usually revolving) and neon with stop-motion animation but I've never seen neon animated like this. A truly unique find.
