Cafetorium ClOSED


Dashon B. speaks of this find:
This gem was found in Northhampton, MA, and even though there are many ClOSED signs floating around, this one is unique, as they caught them young (it's at an elementary school), and the word Cafetorium is completely awesome also.

I have to admit, I thought this CAFETORIUM was a bastardized spelling of CAFETERIA, until I read that it is actually a room doubling as both a cafeteria and an auditorium. Though, based on the ClOSED sign below, it could actually read CAFETORLUM, and we'd never know.

And the best part: the door is open!

What's puzzling is that this sign appears to have been printed off a computer...So somebody went out of their way to make the "L" lowercase.

William Levin said...

Anna, I don't think that is a printed sign. Look closely, the letters are crooked, so it's more a case of stenciled letter prints.

The capital R in cafetorium also looks weird—why does the tail go out so far?

William Levin said...

Jack, I wonder if they ran out of R's and used a P instead, and added the extra R bit from some other random letter?
