This is not a random neon laboratory from the past.

This place is where the neon inventor worked more than 100 years ago.

This is Georges Claude’s neon shop portrayed in a 1914 Science magazine.

 

A little bit of history:

The term neon derives from the Greek word "Neos," which means "new gas".
Georges Claude introduced the first neon lamp to the public on December 11, 1910, in Paris.

The terms "neon light" and "neon sign" in the common language mean sealed glass tubes filled with a specific gas or with a mixture: argon, neon or another one.
