The Museum of Neon Art in downtown L.A. (136 W. 4th), which already has Montclair’s old Midway Building Materials sign with its animated bricklayer in its collection (albeit in storage), is now displaying a familiar sign from Pomona: County Fair Pie A La Mode.
It’s on loan from James McDemas and John English and will be displayed indefinitely. Nice setting, too.
Museum executive director Kim Koga told me the duo “got all three of the pie-a-la-mode neon signage and all of the smaller hand-painted signs that went along with it.” They apparently did not get any pie or ice cream, however.
Here’s an earlier blog post about the museum.
