The historic neon signs from local businesses are still on display along the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Installed in May 2018, the signs will continue to be illuminated daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. through April 2019.
Here are two signs photographed by Bob Somerville. The European Restaurant occupied 218 Hanover Street in the North End from 1917 until 1997. The Cycle Center provided affordable bicycles to families in Natick from 1956 to 1997. Take a walk down the Greenway to see all eight signs!
