I Got a (Vintage Marquee) Letter in The Mail, from Bay City Cargo

Posted on: March 8, 2011


I could not resist the pun when I realized I got a “letter” in the mail! (even though that’s usually Eccentric Roadside’s area of expertise!)

Letter B - Vintage Marquee Letter From Bay City Cargo

I have been in touch recently with  Mike of Bay City Cargo in Belfast Maine- who has the world’s largest collection of vintage theater marquee letters. He is also the owner of The Colonial Theatre in Belfast, ME www.ColonialTheatre.com – which often gets confused (URL-wise) with my Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, PA www.THEColonialTheatre.com 🙂 What a small cool world.

If you are interested in buying some cool old vintage letters from theaters, casinos, restaurants and more, check their listings on eBay. They also sell new letters for your marquee, in case you’re not into the “ransom note” look of mismatched letters.

I could not help but think of this Sesame Street video from The Beetles when I opened the package.
