I've realized I have a thing about signs, particularly old ones with designs that clearly evoke an earlier time. Tonight, I attended the re-lighting of the sign for the Highland Theatre on Figueroa St. in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The sign dates back to 1924. About 200 people were there, as well as a marching band, cheerleaders and a city councilman. Some public money and a lot of private money went into restoring the sign, and the re-lighting was a really nice little neighborhood civic event. I really enjoyed it.
