Kasper's was an Oakland institution until it closed in 2003. It opened in 1929 and was owned by three generations of sons until its closing. This building and iconic neon sign continue to occupy a triangle corner at Temescal's Telegraph and Shattuck Avenues. While photographing this sign, I met a neighborhood denizen who fondly remembered getting dogs here and still laments its closing. For more "K" photos, be sure to visit ABC Wednesday.
