Long Description:
This old beauty certainly has seen better days. What I wouldn't do to see this one with the fountain lit and the chasing bulbs going.

Here's a couple shots of this sign during the day.
Rural charm in the heart of Detroit?
Yeah, okay... sure maybe compared to its surroundings... (visit link)

Incidently, Woodward Avenue was once part of the old Dixie Highway.
