Carrefour Hypermarket giant neon sign night

The Carrefour hypermarket in the north eastern French town of Charleville Mézières seen at night with the outsize Carrefour neon letters reflected in the rain-speckled roofs of parked cars. Carrefour (meaning 'crossroads') is one of France's leading supermarket chains and its stores can also be found in the UAE, but not in the UK.


I have a never-ending fascination for neon signs. This giant size one looks especially striking reflected in the rain against a black sky. A neon sign this large would never receive planning permission in the UK.
