san francisco galvanizing

I like this Deco-ish typeface on a building at Harrison near 8th in San Francisco. Check out the low cross-bars, the tiny spur on the G, the bulbous loop on the R, the very open C, and most of all the straight central section of the S. It all works.

While we’re in the neighborhood, a few blocks up 8th Street you can see these tiles facing a parking lot on the side of a building.

ulysses writ on tiles

I wonder if whoever did this ever noticed the typo in the title of the poem (or the one in its final word).
