San Gabriel, Cal.

I often drove past Valley and San Gabriel Boulevards. A building on the southwest corner was being renovated, eventually stripped down to its handsome brickyard. Uncovered was a sign from a former business, "Gilmore's Pharmacy." I snapped this photo while waiting for the light in the summer of 2002.

Historic brick buildings are in vogue and greatly admired today,
however this 21st century, blasé cover-up is ghastly.
