Signs in Wildwood, New Jersey, August, 2004

One evening while we were down the shore in Stone Harbor, Laura and I went out to take photographs of some of the fabled signs in Wildwood, just down the shore. Wildwood is reknowned for its "doo wop" style of architecture, reminiscent of the 1950s, and one of the primary characteristics of the style is neon. Lots and lots of neon.

These are just some of the interesting signs we saw that night. I make no claim that these are even the most interesting signs in Wildwood, just that these are the ones that caught our eyes on this evening.
