Last week's place: (clue: Capri-cious diving belle?) "Diving lady" neon sign outside the Villa Capri Hotel and Apartments, 1417 Orange Avenue, Coronado, opposite the Hotel Del Coronado. Owner Bettye Trowbridge Vaughen had the classic '50s inn, and its sign, built in 1956. Vaughen, a top post-war L.A. model who was set to play opposite John Wayne in Red River when she became pregnant, still oversees the running of her hotel. This sign was featured in the 1996 movie Flirting with Disaster.
