1988 – Juanita & Jimi

Young Monica left the handprint. She’d be 28 today.

1988 – Bernabe & Brinker

21 December 2011


2240 Wood Street

This address was until recently Bernabe & Brinker’s business site. I don’t expect to see this mark anywhere else, but there are two of them here.

524 7th Street

I haven’t been able to figure out what to call this shape; for a long time I thought of it as a “block oval,” but someone suggested “barrel.” That works if you picture a wine barrel, which is stored on its side, rather than the historical ideas of a pickle barrel, a cash-on-the-barrelhead barrel or a barrel-worn-by-a-broke-guy, which is upright. Works for me.
