(Disneyland, 1963) An incredible neon "D" which was prominently displayed over the Disneyland Hotel's "Tower Building" which would later be renamed the "Sierra" tower. From 1963 until 1999, this large neon "D" was displayed over the Disneyland Hotel and was visible by countless Disneyland guests as they exited the park at night. The Tower Building was constructed in 1962, and the "Disneyland Hotel" red neon letters were added in 1963. The Tower Building featured a glass elevator on the exterior that caused spacing issues for the neon sign. As such, this sign read "Hotel Disneyland" until the building expanded in 1966 and the words could be arranged to the correct "Disneyland Hotel" position. This neon "D" is one of the most iconic elements from the golden age of the Disneyland Hotel, and also serves as an early Disneyland landmark. This neon letter is constructed in its original metal frame, and has had its red neon professionally restored to working condition. This incredible artifact measures approximately 16ft tall, 9ft wide, and 4in deep. The condition is very good, with some expected wear to the frame during the sign's removal from the hotel. Special shipping arrangements will apply. Please inquire before bidding.
