Big Futura Bold Condensed

I like this building.

And I like the big, hand-painted, weather-worn Futura Bold Condensed on the sign. And I like the snowman in the window. And I like the rabbit.

When coaster brakes were sexy

Movie star Rita Hayworth sells the New Departure Coaster Brake. The ad is also promoting Hayworth's appearance in the 1940 movie, "Music In My Heart."

I took these pictures while visiting the Deke Slayton Memorial Space and Bicycle Museum in Sparta, Wisconsin. NASA astronaut Slayton was born in Sparta and there's a wonderful bike trail built on a railroad bed in Sparta. 2 + 2 = Space and Bicycle Museum.
