Portable Neon Sign (Aug, 1951)

Portable Neon Sign
Going the sandwich sign one better, a portable neon sign is the newest idea in advertising in Tokyo. The sign, powered by a small battery, will remain lighted for several hours.

    In case you’re wondering, the sign just says “Tokyo” on it, with odd decorative swooshes around it.

    My first thought on seeing this is that I would REALLY hate to be running around holding that in the rain…15-30Kv on those neon tubes would ruin your whole day!

    That looks like something out of Blade Runner.
