Whittier Budget Inn

Whittier Budget Inn, Whittier, CA.

A motor motel turned "inn", this delapidated sign still stands between dozens of others along the west side of Whittier Blvd. It's hardly even legible any more.

That poor sign has seen better days.

In light of it's condition it might be best if it was just taken down and given a proper burial. Old signage that has been allowed to fall into disrepair after years and years of neglect that will shamefully never be cared for again just becomes a blight on the already ugly landscape of concrete, asphault and cookie cutter strip malls.

If only these sorts of signs (and the tens of thousands of interesting neon signs that have already been torn down and forgotten) could be maintained and the strip malls torn down and replaced with - oh, I dunno . . . . ANYTHING - a lot of us would be much happier.

Keep up the chronicles. You've almost got me inspired to document interesting mid-century buildings and signs up here in the valley.

Going to the Palm Springs Modernism convention this weekend. 4th year in a row.
