A Neon Fixture Left On For 77 Years
This is a neat little story I read today. Apparently during a renovation at the Clifton’s Cafeteria in L.A., during the great depression, a worker left the switch on a neon fixture. It is believed that the fixture was installed around 1935 - that was 77 years ago. The current owner estimates that the electric bill for this mishap is around $17,000. When a crew was hired recently to remodel, one of the workmen saw a reflection, after further investigation the light was revealed. Pretty neat! Please share, Carmen

  1. Neat story. I worked at the Pentagon and while I was there a work crew discovered several offices that were closed in.
