Recognize this place? III

My friend PH built something where this once stood – Main and Rose.  In this instance, a better trade.  But we did lose forever the shark tooth sign – which seemed to match the ass end of cars back then. Damn that sign looks rough.  Did people have dreams of saws?

Looks like they ran out of room for the sign.  Announcing The Downtowne…..

Who thought that low slung, horizontal buildings would create a great downtown?  We had examples of real urbanism here, you know.  But it was the great experiment. We had won the wars!  We could do as we please!  We’re living with how all that worked out.

Meeting room.  Hi-fi.  How on earth did it not last?
