Photographer's Note

AYMINY (A Yorkshire Man In New York) is a series of shots I took on a short visit to New York.

This is my My 7th post.

I am also posting shots on my TrekLens site.


We had breakfast at this Deli on west 40th street most mornings, for me, Orange juice, coffee, french toast, bacon and sauages - I only have Branflakes at home!

A note on Neon signs (from the net).

'The French engineer, chemist, and inventor Georges Claude (b. Sept. 24, 1870, d. May 23, 1960), was the first to apply an electrical discharge to a sealed tube of neon gas (circa 1902) to create a lamp.
The word neon comes from the Greek "neos," meaning "the new gas."
Georges Claude displayed the first neon lamp to the public on December 11, 1910, in Paris.
In 1923, Georges Claude and his French company Claude Neon, introduced neon gas signs to the United States, by selling two to a Packard car dealership in Los Angeles.
Earle C. Anthony purchased the two signs reading "Packard" for $24,000.
Neon lighting quickly became a popular fixture in outdoor advertising.
Visible even in daylight, people would stop and stare at the first neon signs dubbed "liquid fire."
