Photo-finish Friday: Felix
This car dealership has stood at the corner of Jefferson and Figueroa in LA for decades. The owners got the right to use Felix the Cat of cartoon fame in the 1920s and the current sign went up in 1958. Now there are efforts afoot to have it preserved as a Historic Cultural Monument. I walk by here on the way to/from work and snapped this one afternoon recently.
