Ola!



Saw this on the way home from work today. I'm assuming the rest of it will say "Coca-C" at some point. I'm so happy they are repainting this! I was just mentioning to my girlfriend the other day that I wish they would repaint those things. Wish granted.



This is at the corner of Central and Broadway.

What I want to know is: will Coke honor the advertised 5 cent price?

I drive past this almost every day and never noticed it. I love signs on brick! I have to say that I was a little disappointed with the way the JFG repaint turned out. I wish it didn't looks so so new. But maybe I'm crazy.

I noticed that the other day. I'm kind of curious why they're repainting it. I think it's great, but I'm sort of lost for the motivation, especially when I'd rather see the effort go into some of the building facades around that corner.

and there's the argument for original patina. i suppose if it were left alone it would eventually all be gone, but this looks a little too brand-spankin' new for my taste.

full disclosure: people said that to me about the tennessee theatre when it was newly restored. eventually they got over it and fell in love with it all over again.

it looked really great today when i drove by. the guy had filled in part of the white with red and the rest of the sign is starting to take shape. i even managed to shout "looks great!" out my window as i drove by but i doubt he heard me.
