Vancouver Neon, Sign Laws & Museums | Interview with Civic Historian John Atkin

John Atkin tells Mondo the unlikely story of how a Vancouver-born civic historian and heritage consultant became a neon expert. John shares stories about Canada’s great-outdoors capital - and the difficult process of bringing some of the city’s most majestic backdrops back to life. John has helped Vancouverites remember the inner city that once was, and has given rise to a new generation of metropolitans that want to know more about the brightness that lies ahead.
