Chapman Car Wash

Chapman Car Wash, Garden Grove, CA.

A picture of each side of the sign. The west side of the sign has been readapted as a pigeon's coop-- it's covered in their mess and filled with them in all the cracks. The east, darker side of the sign is much cleaner (but harder to see since the sun was right behind it). Imagine whether those pylons on the top of the sign used to keep moving up up up-- maybe they had a couple sputniks or starbursts on top. It's hard with these old signs to tell what exactly has been changed. Like, for example, the "car wash" font on this sign is most likely not original-- it's too plain for a sign with so many shapes!
