“06880” readers may not know how to spell “Sunny Daes.” *
But 34 of you — a record — knew that last week’s photo challenge can be found in a corner of that ice cream shop’s parking lot.
It’s been there a while. The photo showed part of an old Texaco sign. It belonged to King’s gas station — a fixture on Riverside Avenue for years, but now long gone. (Click here to see it.)
According to Bill Caldwell, the sign should have been “removed and destroyed as required by Texaco corporate requirements,” when the auto repair and service station left.
We’re glad it wasn’t. It’s a cool relic of a bygone era. And — judging by all the comments — plenty of people know it’s there.
Congrats to all the observant readers: Rich Stein, Seth Schachter, Linda Amos, Seth Goltzer, Ed Simek, Michael Calise, Grover Fitch, Marc Hartog, Tom Ryan, Bill Kiedaisch, Ralph Balducci, Martin Gitlin, Fred Cantor, Judith Ann Johnston, Seth Braunstein, Dana Brownell, Rosalie Kaye, Bobbie Herman, Mary Anne Liesner, Philip Delgado, Andrew Colabella, Mickey Herbst, James Weisz, Lynn Wilson, Erik Ostbye, Stephanie Ross, Rachel Halperin, Garrison Manne, Phil Rubin, Michael Traum, Robert Sohmer, Sue Kirby, Bill Caldwell and Christine Utter.

* “Sunny Daes” is supposedly a play on the word “Sundaes.” If you have to explain it to people, it probably doesn’t work.
