signs: Kasper's Hot Dogs

Kasper's

Kasper's is a chain, albeit a fairly small one, but the Kasper's on the point between Telegraph and Shattuck is the original. While I was taking the pictures, someone in a car said to his passenger, "That's not the original Kasper's." I asked where it was (I think he was surprised I heard him), and he said up the street. The light changed and he was gone before I could get more than that. This wasn't the original location, but it was here from 1943 until 2005, which is a heck of a run. There's a nice writeup on it over at Oakland North.

It is a great sign. I want to get a picture of the Kasper's sign over on MacArthur. It's not the original, and doesn't have the chef figure above, but it's in good shape. So many signs, so little time :-)
