Welcome to Hobbs Battery!

I'm sure Hobbs is long gone ...but the sign remains! Old Town Orange, California. I must go back and try the Japanese restaurant.

The sign probably dates back to when that building was built 1920's (?) or maybe later ...1940's and then freshened at some point. It looks like they added "For all cars ..." later...

Love when old signage remains long after a business is gone, juxtaposed against new businesses that have grown up in its place - gives us a sense of continuity - where we've been and where we're going. Nice capture!
