Times Square Smoking Winston Sign

I photographed this around '74 on my Zeiss Ikon Contessa rangefinder on Kodachrome slide film. It sure looks a lot different down there now. Its starting to look like Blade Runner.

The smoking sign in Times Square blew about 1,000 rings a day; a steam-producing box, located behind the head of the man in the sign, created the rings.

The Winston sign had replaced the Camel sign, which operated from 1941 to 1966 on Broadway between Forty-third and Forty-fourth Streets.
