Texas Old Neon

TEXAS OLD NEON
The Dan Holzschuh Collection

"I have been designing, building and collecting neon signs all my life. I am a native Texan and started photographing signs as I saw them starting to disappear thirty years ago. I also rescued all the ones I could." - Dan Holzschuh

Ghost Story

"I noticed your collection of ghost stories is missing the one for Fort Worth book depository murder. I have put three signs on the building for three different businesses and I've heard plenty of stories. I can;t verify what I heard, but what I personally saw was the margarita machine completely empty itself overnight. (It was the type you have to physically turn the throttle down and lock.) In the morning it was up. The managers all complained about the buzzer on the delivery door going off at odd hours and no one there when the door was opened."

(Above) is the Chisholm Trail mural building in Sundance Square. My 95.9 Ranch Radio sign is on the corner. - Dan Holzschuh, June 27, 2017
