In 1923, Georges Claude introduces his neon signs to the United States. He sells two neon signs to a Packard Car dealership in Los Angeles. Earle C. Anthony purchased the two signs reading"Packard" . Georges Claude charged $24,000 for those two signs.

That $24,000 is $335,000 today. I've seen small neon signs on the net for less than $50.

that bottom one especially, with the mules... it makes me wonder, where are the brakes on that thing? the load's got to be several tons, no power, no hydraulics, how do they keep the mules from getting run over?

I would guess there's a brake on the railcar like wagons, buggies and buckboards. They'd have to set a brake when parked without the mules attached or it would roll away trying to load it.
