Now this is a liquor store sign! Pacific Liquor on El Cajon Bl. sports a bottle pouring, you guessed it, liquor! Another roadside find in the great So Cal city of San Diego.

This small storefront for Chito's Shoe Repair in the heart of North Park has a wonderful animated neon cobbler elf on its front. The owners had the elf completely refurbished about 8 years ago. The elf is hammering the sole of a shoe.

Mystery Liquor

Yes, it is the legendary "Mystery Liquor" store off University Ave., in San Diego. Why is it labeled "mystery?" Is it because of the "mysterious" concoctions in the 'fridges just waiting to be gulped? Or is it the "mysterious" meats on sale? Or is it because the source of this neon sign is a "mystery?" Let's leave this a mystery.

 

 

The credit union designed their building to resemble a locomotive engine, complete with a wonderful mural on the rear of the building. The original neon sign from Frank's is one of the first 'moving' neon signs if memory serves correct. It was fully refurbished and still shines brightly every evening.

1st & Ivy Market and Liquor

Just north of downtown in the Banker's Hill neighborhood of San Diego is the world famous (well, at least "local famous") 1st and Ivy Market and Liquor. Stop by to grab some munchies as you stand under the Lindbergh Field flight path. Not sure if this is a "liquor" store or "M.C.et?" According to an eyewitness, the vertical sign isn't sure either, alternating flashes between the two.
