Citgo sign

the citgo sign, close to fenway stadium, is a part of the boston skyline since 1940! not pretty; i think its comparable to the ugly colgate clock, which you can see from manhattan, while looking out over the hudson river towards new jersey. but its such a famous landmark that, upon seeing, immediately reminds you of boston... i guess.
im currently a bit lazy concerning my blog and/or checking other blogs... :( or rather; too busy!
so... if you want to read more about the citgo sign, you can click here!

To big and awful placed on that building. Bad for a skyline. Hard to believe it is from 1940!

I prefer the London and the Parish sign, funny quote about Boston.

This sign dates from the mid '60s and the three different red triangles were allegedly the top selling lipstick shades.
