follow that sign!

On a bright and sunny day –

THE sign went up!

We are now SO official!

A friend just driving up told us how visible the sign is even from a few blocks away.

Here you can see the guys install the yellow neon, which gives a glow to the actual sign.

This neon sign is actually ‘grandfathered’ in by the city of Portland, meaning the city does not allow signs to stick out over the sidewalk like this one does. Which also means that if it is moved AT ALL, we lose the sign permit. The other day, I learned that the shop part of our building was put up in 1947. (I wonder if the sign dates back to this time as well…)

The guys (form Hannahsign here in PDX) drove up with their truck and the extendable ladder to work on the sign. It looked pretty tricky at times!

I took this picture last night at about 6:30.

If you live around here and take a night picture – I’ll post it and you win a PRIZE!
