So let's visit a few pictures from the heyday of neon in Columbus. These were sent to me by Ms. Catherine A. Eitel, whose father started Allied Sign Company in Columbus. These are some that he actually did himself, among others.
|Jiffy Burgers. 12c hamburgers!|
|The Jiffy Drive Ins. Location unknown, though a 194 directory lists a location as E. 5th Avenue.|
|AMF Main Lanes. This sign was gone before I started bowling there in the early 1990s, though some of the neon on the building itself survived to the end, and I have a photo of it somewhere.|
|The Blue Danube! Still around and the neon still looks great some 50-60 years later!|
