The lettering on the sign was illuminated at night with neon tubing. These signs represented the first time that "L" stations were really marked with identifiers of that scale and type. Their design owes to two things: 1) Typical 1950's advertising and graphic design; and 2) the fact that the Congress stations were in the median of an expressway, isolated in the middle of a long bridge away from the neighborhoods that supplied many of the customers, meant that the stations needed a beacon to identify them from a longer distance.
