Back in the Saddle Again!

yellow-BARTremendous news — the enormous electric boot is back on Broad! It’s been fully restored and illuminated!Boot1Having heard that The Boot and Saddle’s fabulous sign had returned to it’s rightful place, I headed over there armed with a couple of cameras. I had done this before to see a physically restored sign, but much to my delight, the boot was alight!

    It’s a beautiful sign — all I had to do is wait for dark and the light show.
