Woolworth's Sweet Shop

Building, 1911

This fine old sign was probably vividly colored when new. "EAT AND ENJOY" is still visible in the upper left while the nicely scripted "WOOLWORTH'S" splashes across the top-center. The building dates to 1911 and the sign painters helpfully dated their work with "1912" along the bottom. This is on the south facing wall of the building at SE 13th and Tenino.
