Restoration Neon

Neon signs defined Las Vegas, signifying fantasy, fun and the kind of frontier freedom that has slipped away from so many other places. Yet many of the signs are in danger of forever disappearing as old buildings are demolished. Discover the history of the neon signs from their first usage in late 1920s Las Vegas to the present day and what it takes to bring these historic icons back to life.
