Signs of old Echo Park

Photo from The Eastsider

We love it when pieces of Echo Park’s historic charm are restored, saved and appreciated. That applies to old signs, like the familiar giraffe sign on Temple Street. The Eastsider reported on how the new tenants of this brick building fixed up the old sign and had fun in the process, adding an “X-ray” of the giraffe’s neck. Does anyone remember what business installed the giraffe? We would like to know.
