Not Fulton Park, which is located further south, near where Barbur curves to the north toward town after passing by the Burlingame Fred Meyer. I believe this is part of the Corbett/Terwilliger/Lair Hill neighborhood.
My dad always hated this signal! He’d shift gears, mumble something under his breath, my mother would remind him about his two sons in the back seat…and then he wouldn’t say another word until we got home! (Capitol Hill/Burlingame Park area…originally Falcon Park!)
Thanks for the smile, the laugh and the memory!
By the way…aren’t we about ready for an anniversary for this site?
@Jim. I know just how your dad felt. When you missed this light with a loaded big truck it added 10 minutes to your run to the top of breeze hill because it was just steep enough you needed 1st double under to start out. If you made the light there is a false flat along here and you could pick up a gear and if you’re making 9 cents a mile 10 minutes is a big deal. At least it seemed that way at the time.
The Pagoda was probably feeling the competition from the Hi Hat and felt the need to remind folks they were going the wrong way
Talk about deja-vu, I painted & maintained that bulliten board for a number of years for Ramsay Signs Inc. Our crew helped provide jobs in that end of the sign business. ( outdoor advertising) The Pagoda was a very nice restraurant in Portland’s Hollywood area.
I also designed the electric sign, called out the ceramic tile exterior
of the building. My associate in the Co. helped design the Bon-Sai
Plantings for the landscaping. The combination of the sign, matching decor on the building, and the landscaping won a first prize in the state , and 2nd in the national sign design contest. The Pagoda was a long time business in the Hollywood area. Food and service were superb. I will surely miss that place.
