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.
