The neon atop the Rosslyn hotel was temporarily lit last night during the filming of Life on Mars. Oddly enough, the neon wasn’t connected to the DWP mains that once powered it, but to the production company’s generators. I wrote a bit more about the history of the Rosslyn’s neon on blogdowntown.
Of course, I wasn’t the first or only person to shoot the temporarily lit sign, Jim Winstead, Bert Green and Sha In LA also shot and blogged about the sign. You can see more of the photos I took on flickr or eecue.com.
