Arrows Point the Way…

This weeks challenge is to post an image to do with “direction.”

At one time, swooping arrows were the big thing on neon signs. The arrow would direct the passing tourist in the right direction, towards the front door of the establishment, where patronage would then take place…These arrows leave no doubt about where you should go!

The Cross Roads Drive Inn is is South Tucson, Arizona.

The Ham Bone Sports Bar and Grill, Mesa, AZ

The quality Liquor Drive-In was sent to me without identification. If anyone has spotted it, please let me know!

The Ham Bone and Trails West Motel are in Mesa, Arizona.

If you’ve tried the food or the beer at any of these places,  let’s hear your comments!
