San Francisco: Nitecap

San Francisco: Nitecap

October 17, 2010. The Nitecap bar, at the corner of O'Farrell and Hyde in The Tenderloin, San Francisco. This was another one of my favourite signs, though I didn't manage to get a photo that I really liked.

Still, I think my all-time favourite bar sign is from right near my own neighbourhood in Toronto. Check out this 1960's photo from the City of Toronto Archives, where you can clearly see the old sign at Duffy's Tavern, at the corner of Bloor and Margueretta. I wish that sign was still there.
