Share your neon sign story

Neon photography by Walter Griba Neon Vancouver | Ugly Vancouver opens at the MOV on Thursday, October 13. The  exhibition explores Vancouver's gritty, urban past in a fascinating look at the explosion of neon signs in the 1950s through 1970s and the visual purity crusade that virtually eradicated them from Vancouver streets.

Memories already starting to flow this way, and we're wondering what neon stories you have.

Did you use to have a neon sign at your store? Were you a frequenter of a club or shop with a great neon sign? Do you remember a hotel sign now long gone or foster fond memories of one still there today?

Tell us your neon story, or share with us what your favourite piece of neon signage in the city is – or was!

Comment below, engage on our Facebook, or add pictures to our Flickr Pool of neon signs that you’ve photographed.

Can't wait to hear your tales!
