Calhoun Georgia Great Sign

Here's a photo taken in 1975 of the Holiday Inn sign in Calhoun, Georgia at the Redbud Road exit. Don't ask me who Kim and Kathy are, but the boy in the front gives you an idea of how large these signs were.

My brother and I used to play catch next to this exact sign, if we arrived at the motel before the sunset. As we got older, we would throw the ball over the sign trying not to hit it. We never did break anything, but I imagine the Innkeeper would have been on pins and needles if he saw us throwing a ball over his sign.

I wish I had a photo of the sign at night. If you watch the movie "The Blues Brothers" or some episodes of "Starsky and Hutch" you'll see the sign at night, all lit up.
