Pruce's Motor Inn: Retro Sign Amidst Decay

In the quiet stretches of Sault Ste., Ontario, Canada, stands a relic of a bygone era: Pruce's Motor Inn in Heyden. This once-thriving establishment now wears the weight of time, its walls echoing stories of travelers who once sought refuge within its confines. The inn's decline, hastened by neglect and vandalism, paints a poignant picture of the passage of time. Yet, standing tall and defiant against this backdrop of decay is the inn's retro sign. This towering beacon, proudly displaying the inn's name, is accompanied by two additional signs, hinting at the coffee shop and restaurant that once served weary travelers.

Canada's Highway 17, with its stretches of small towns and motels, evokes memories of the iconic Route 66. In their prime, both roads were arteries of adventure, exploration, and discovery. Pruce's Motor Inn was a part of this tapestry, a testament to the spirit of the open road and the allure of the unknown.

The juxtaposition of the vibrant sign against the crumbling inn reminds us of the transient nature of time. It's a narrative of change, of memories held within the abandoned walls and signs, and of the enduring spirit of the road.

As the creator, I personally print, sign, and package every print at my studio in Haliburton, Ontario. These prints are then shipped worldwide via Canada Post free of charge. Therefore, delivery times can vary based on location, anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

Additionally, when traveling and shooting on location, orders placed during these periods will be dispatched upon my return. This may result in delivery times extending to several weeks. However, rest assured that the wait for these unique pieces is well worth it!
