Jubilee Square

Jubilee Square, Orange, CA.

Half of Googie's character comes from its typography. While the Jubilee Square sign is not particularly exciting in its shape or color, the typography on the top sign does all the work. (Although that starburst on top helps a little!)

I really enjoy the look at Orange County "archeology". I'm sure that thousands of people see these signs and buildings every day and are unaware of the history, fun, or even beauty of them.

Great shots. Thanks for taking the time to document and publish these. It makes me miss Orange County and I have not even been gone a year!
