    a good friend of mine sold this to me today - for a song! it's huge - around 9 ft long x 5 ft tall, and in 3 separate pieces. I believe that it was once a neon sign. I'd love to see it restored, but probably can't afford to do that myself. it's also larger than any place i have for it! so i'm not sure what i'm going to do w/ it at this point. but it sure is a great piece! when do you all think it was made?

      I think they had one like that at the Chester Pa Y where I took swimming lessons in 1960
