Wooo! Stainless

I think someone at the local appliance shop here in Redmond is just a little too enthusiastic about their products here:

The fact that none of the Os in the word “Wooo!” match the others is a nice touch as well.  Also note that the sign at the top is original from when this particular shopping center was built more than fifty years ago.  A photo of the sign, as well as what is billed as “Redmond’s first modern shopping center” can be found at the Redmond Historical Society website.  A couple of additional historic photos of this shopping center  from shortly after it opened in 1956 can be found here and here, as well as a photo showing the center under construction here.  I will make sure to go take some photos showing the center (which has actually changed little over the years) in its present state.
