The word amazing has lost all meaning.
What happens next won’t blow your mind, either.
The Old Amazing:
Fertilization of the human egg
The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel
The construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza
The New Amazing:
A photo of a .99 store
Anyone remember if the neon letters on the New Mission sign were static (ie, always illuminated) or if they were animated (ie, each letter turned on to spell M-I-s-s-I-o-n) like the Castro sign does currently? It was before my time and I always wondered.
As I remember it they were steady burning neon. It used to look really nice at night.
Also that is not vintage, that’s a few years ago. I was born in the Mission, I remember it well in the late 70′s as a kid, when my mom used to shop at Giant Value right next door. This image shows the 99¢ store that moved in years later after the theatre had closed.
Mission Mission is our daily salute to San Francisco's most vibrant neighborhood. We love it here, and we bet you do too.
