THE SAlAD PlACE

Last time, on lowercaseL, an "unknown" commenter offered this tempting teaser:
Go onto Google Maps and check out the corner of Persia and London in San Francisco's Excelsior district. There's a place called THE SAlAD PlACE, whose name appears thusly on a large hand-painted mural. The l's are a carrot and a celery stalk, but methinks that cutesy conceit would have worked far better had they made the other non-initial letters lowercase, too.
So I followed up, and using the free 21st century spying software, I was able to find the offending sign in just a few seconds. Thank you, UNKNOWN lOWERCASE L SOlDIER.
