I didn’t mean to be away for so long, but I am back and want to share the last three utility boxes before moving onto sharing the second phase.
This utility box pays homage to South Pasadena being on Route 66. South Pasadena was part of the 1926-31 and 1940-1964 alignment, which included several major city attractions including the Rialto Theatre, Gus’s Barbecue and Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain.
The panels are filled with common car culture imagery including the pin striping on the sides of the auxiliary box below. The asphalt texture and road tread complete the theme.
The design is well executed and a fabulous depiction of an important part of South Pasadena’s history. Stay tuned for two more boxes from phase one!
