Sign Week: Day Six

Friday, May 8, 2009

Radio station KXXO Mixx 96.1 makes it's home in the Rockway-Leland Building. Built in 1941, it was and still is considered an important contribution to the Art Deco style in the downtown area. Prior to this station it was home to KGY Radio, one of the oldest stations in the United States. There was also an air raid siren mounted on the roof which alerted the Olympia area residents of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    I'm a big fan of neon lights. The more nostalgic or innovative the better. Awesome series of photos. Thanks for visiting.

  2. Another cool one and historically interesting too. Do you still have sirens? The sirens in France are tested every first Wednesday of the month at 12:00 noon... A good way to check your watch every month!
