I love the old vintage signs, even better when they’re neon signs. I love to look into the story they tell.
Located at 960 E 2100 S in Salt Lake City, Nu-Crisp Popcorn Co. was established in 1933 and started this location in 1946. The best I can tell it closed in 1994 so I’m surprised it is still sitting here undisturbed in 2020.
They sold 33 flavors of popcorn and a lot of taffy and candy.
Diamond Lil’s was a long time steak house in Salt Lake City, from 1969 when it sat 30 people to 2016-2018?? (not sure when it closed exactly) as a 20,000 foot attraction.
It was quite an experience, basically a western museum with all the items decorating the walls.
Garth and Lil Campbell founded the restaurant with Jim Funaro.
I stopped by to document Mountain Courtyard Suites, an apartment building in Salt Lake City that is in poor shape. I’m not sure if they’re going to fix it or knock it down but just in case I like to get photos to be able to look back on.
Raging Waters, a large water park in Salt Lake City, Utah later became Seven Peaks Waterpark and then closed down. I stopped by to get some photos and video clips and document it before it fades away.
While I was there I noticed the grass had just been burned, I didn’t realize it was only two days prior until I got back and looked the park up online and saw this article. It turns out just a couple of weeks later there was a fire in the office (see this article) so I’m glad I went when I did.
