Notice the clown-caricature chef on the Oscar's sign
      Being a native Angelino, I grew up with Jack-In-The-Box (aka-Crap-In-The-Box) as a common sight, never knew that piece of history. Thanks Clark!

          • Those are some impressive utility poles in Needles CA (#2198). I don't think I've ever seen so many "arms(?)" on a wooden pole before.

                      • I had a Concord Blue Commander Starlight (like the one in 2203) when I was in high school, C. 1974.

                        • The background building in #2203 is outstanding as well. I wonder if it still stands somewhere? One ground floor sign says Portland Die & Stamping-Hmmm Maine or Oregon? <G>
