Detail: Rooftop Atlas


Have you noticed that building signs from the 60’s and 70’s seem WAY more interesting than they do today?  I’m thinking about the Atlas on top of the Fur Factory building (a bit random; but still, visually interesting) and the Fourth Avenue Theater sign. I wish we could bring a bit of the old school flair back into our cityscapes.

What are the other cool signs in Anchorage?

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!

  1. Fireworks lights over Sears mall. The crown on the restaurant across N Lights from the Sears mall (forgot it’s name). The neon Northern Lights pillars for the Northern Lights center (strip mall with REI and Title wave). The large tattoo needle on Anchorage Tattoo studio near Benson & Arctic. All cheezy and poorly repaired, but interesting.
