There's a lot of neon and a 1957 four-door Chevrolet at Little Anthony's Diner, 7010 E Broadway Blvd. The restaurant is paired with the Gaslight Theatre, known for its fun musical and theatrical parodies. Tony Terry and the theatre owners purchased the old Jerry Lewis Cinema in 1990 (moving from Sabino Canyon and Tanque Verde) and built Little Anthony's as a stand-alone restaurant. But it also supplies food and drinks for Gaslight patrons.
Arizona Daily Star photographer Kelly Presnell revisited neon signs that dot the landscape in Tucson. Many are a throwback to a time when a handful of longtime restaurants, hotels and bars served a smaller city. Some of the signs are barely hanging on today. Some have been lovingly restored to their former glory. Regardless, there's no way to duplicate the feel of neon when the sun goes down.
