The Rose Kennedy Greenway has started installing a series of eight old Boston-area neon signs between India and State streets.
The signs, all from the collection of neon-loving Dave Waller of Malden, date as far back as 1925. Locally, Bostonians may remember the waving chicken outside Fontaine's on VFW Parkway in West Roxbury and the European.
The chicken is being installed today.
By exhibiting these signs together and amidst The Greenway’s permanent Light Blades, the Conservancy is creating a new geography of light.
The exhibit is one of three based on the theme of light planned for installation along the Greenway this summer.
