My friend and former cubicle neighbor just did a story on Honolulu’s vintage neon signs for the February issue of Honolulu magazine. The hubba-hubba one is right near our office and even though it’s never lit, it’s kind of great.




  1. kind of great?

    It’s fucking awesome. It says hubba hubba with a foxy lady for crying out loud.
    You really can’t improve on that formula.

  2. Love those signs, often thought about capturing them somehow, a series could be fun. There’s an old Coca Cola sign on the corner of King and Pensacola which i love and want :-)…thanks for the post!

  3. love these shots. there’s something so fun and nostalgic about vintage signs (lit or not).

  4. I think neon signs are pure and innocent. Isla: my husband captured a vintage neon sign series not too long ago. I think you should go for it. I enjoyed running around town looking for those hidden treasures with him. Here’s a link to it, if you’re interested

    AR: love your blog! makes me daydream more than I already do.

  5. Love these photos. There is just something so intriguing about old signs.
