Robert O Williams, formerly a staff photographer with the Philadelphia Inquirer, has put together a book which depicts the neon signage used throughout the history of the town of Wildwood in New Jersey, USA.

Wildwood's Neon Nights and Motel Memories features 220 colour photos which show the 'kitsch, class and memories' of neon lighting and the atmosphere it created in the town. Scenes depicted include a seaside playground in the 1960s and 1970s and the town's difficulties in more recent decades.

The images are accompanied by stories about the town's prominence in tourism and agriculture from participants in the sign, building and advertising trades. Pulitzer Prize-nominated photographer Williams was joined in the venture by Melinda Williams, also formerly of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and managing partner of the Williams Group. It is published by Schiffer Books.
