The Flamingo 

The Flamingo Hotel, 1300 N. Stone Ave., Tucson, AZ

The historic Flamingo Hotel opened on January 24, 1954. The neon sign was added in 1963. The sign’s space-age design was influenced by the cultural changes beginning with the recent launch of the first artificial Earth satellite, Sputnik I, in 1957.
