urban artifact

This sign is all that's left of a used car lot that closed years ago.  I love the little sputnik-like finial at top.  There's still an arrow that points to what is now a vacant lot on Foothill near Courtland Ave.

    This is definitely late '50s-early '60s in style!
    «Louis» envisions this sign all spiffed up, the lights working and a '61 Ford Starliner hardtop parked under it... ;-)

  2. Courageous and effective photo. I must include a bit of urban realism in Jorvik DP.

  3. Old style and a very nice photo:-)
    Wish you a great day!

  4. Very cool sign indeed! Hope someone will save it for a museum or so...
