Vintage KFC bucket sign, San Jose

Vintage KFC bucket sign, San Jose

Now that Kid One is living in San Jose, I have a good reason for heading “over the hill” more than once in a blue moon. One thing I’ve discovered is that San Jose has done a great job preserving historic signs. I posted this one from mStephen’s Meat Products a while back. Here’s one near Kid One’s flat – an old Colonel Sanders bucket marking a KFC and Taco Bell next to Zanotto’s Market near the Rose Garden.  I love it for the food history preserved here.



If you’re a fan of KFC bucket signs, I found this website that talks about all the different styles and where they are in the U.S. 


    • That’s so cool, VATom! Thanks for telling me about it – I’ll have to check it out.
