Sandy Vitale Dance Studio

Whenever I drive down Western Avenue in Gardena I see this beautiful old sign. Unfortunately, rust keeps eating away at it, and sooner rather than later it will finally succumb to the elements. So here's some pictures I took of it for posterity.

From a distance, the old brick building, which still has a dance studio on the top floor.

The back of the building. Gardena has a horrible reputation for preserving their historic buildings, as many on this street have met the bulldozer.

I used a drawing program to create this sign, just so I could see how it once looked.
