The Seahorse Hotel - Galveston

I was flipping channels this a.m. and stopped on a 1963 episode of "Route 66" -- not necessarily because the show is interesting; rather it featured the ever-gorgeous Glenn Corbett, which was reason enough to stay tuned. Part of the story took place at the Seahorse Hotel, built in 1956 and torn down in 2005. The hotel's sign (see picture) is totally cool and I sure hope someone thought to preserve it. From what I can tell watching the episode and doing a little online research, the Seahorse Hotel was a large crescent shape, with the concave section facing the ocean. It looked like a cool place to stay. Too bad it's gone.
