霓虹記錄 neon record - 天鵝湖桑拿 swan lake sauna

2016.8.19 | 汝州街近南昌街  yu chow street near nam cheong street

桑拿似乎不屬於這時代,而這霓虹的年份應該再遠一點,從那中文由右至左寫來推測。

天鵝湖的生意應該不賴,招牌如此巨大,有中有英,而且還加圖像,很有架勢。

從網上搜查,今天還有同名的商號,同樣在深水埗但地址有些距離,也許是原公司。

sauna is a fading business and very grass-root. yet the size and ambition of this neon light tells that business was good. it is no simple design. there is chinese and english name of the business and a special graphic design.

as the chinese writing reads from right to left, the older generation way, it is estimated that this piece of artwork could dated back to the 70s (or earlier?)

tried to look up the company online. a business is running under the same name in the district but not right at this site. not sure if it is the same old company or not.
