This neon caballero astride his rearing horse proved an instant favorite when featured recently on the Library’s Flickr photostream. In this season of special holiday lighting, year-round bright lights come to mind — the neon signs featured in these photographs by Carol M. Highsmith. As you’ll see below in the Learn More list, there are plenty more where these came from. Enjoy!
- Currently, there are almost 100 vibrant color photographs of neon signs by Carol M. Highsmith. There’s even a neon boneyard for retired signs! In the expanding Highsmith Archive, she provides scans or photographs shot digitally so that new donations allow rapid online access throughout the world.
