Market Sign

Market Sign

There are two large neon signs that rise from the rooftop of Pike Place Public Market. A couple of you asked about the full wording of the one you saw with the clock in Monday's photo: it reads "Public Market Center." The one pictured today is a short block north of that with a clear view of it from Pine Street. This is the one often pictured with ferries coming and going in the background on Elliott Bay or Seattlites in the foreground hurriedly crossing the street, umbrellas aloft.

I haven't been down there for years---but it always brings back memories of my in-laws who spent a lot of time there. True Seattleites. MB

When I jumped off the bus the first time I came to Seattle in 1972 this is one of the first things I saw. I always feel good when I see the sign.

"Louis" thinks that anyone who has visited Seattle and the Market remembers this sign fondly. "Louis" certainly does!

neat sign, I love it.
Have you been to Vancouver? I was only there for a brief instant and wandered around for an afternoon. There were tons of old signs there that I found enthralling. It was beautiful. Sadly this was before I got into photography, but I imagine would be a treat to photograph!
