Here is another locked gate that I greatly dislike:
Actually, this gate is often unlocked but Comcast vans are usually blocking the Nestle sign. My kingdom for some bolt cutters and the ability to hot wire a car!
Given the sign’s western-facing direction, that it’s considerably less dilapidated than the surrounding corrugated metal, and the modern can shape & pull tab I’m guessing this sign is “fake old” (or at least restored). However, I couldn’t find a lot on this specific ad/campaign so I’m unsure at this point. Still a gorgeous sign with a great retro color scheme. The sign says:
You’ll look better and love it!
Drink Nestle Sweet Success
Creamy Milk Chocolate
The front of the building can be seen here.
Until recently, there was a twin Nestle Sweet Success sign above CounterSpace on Mission at 9th. This has been effectively obscured by new high rise construction on Jessie Street although it can still be viewed on Google Maps. Oh hai Nestle sign! *waves*
