WAXING THE BLUE SWALLOW SIGN (Rt 66 Tucumcari NM)

WAXING THE BLUE SWALLOW SIGN (Rt 66 Tucumcari NM)

Then-owner Dale Bakke polishes the image of an American icon. Simonize keeps it looking great by day, and the neon is still a nighttime treat.

This sign dates from 1960 and replaced a much smaller, and lower, sign near the road.

Dale and his wife Hilda lovingly restored the 1939 motel which has now been transferred to new owners.
