Hashagen’s, meet La Taqueria

January 18, 2013

1956, via SFPL’s Flickr feed, vs today:

Just think: the people drinking in Hashagen’s would only have to wait 33 years for animated GIFs, and then a bit longer for epickry such as this:

La Taqueria 75

I do wonder if the Hashagen’s beer sign was animated.

It is a little spooky that four years ago I unknowingly stood in just about the same spot as that photographer 57 years ago.

    Great post! Spelled Hashagen’s, tho, according to their frosty mug sign.

      Thanks — I think I spelled it three different ways while writing this post.

    Very cool! Whilst on the subject of old bars on Mission St, have you noticed that Doc’s Clock recently put up a clock, again, on their marquee? The original was removed sometime in the 80s, so it’s nice to see it come back!

    Dear Prospective Mission Bar Owner:

    Please do consider reviving the naked-lady-emerging-from-bubbling-cocktail-holding-mysterious-blue-orb for your logo. The neighborhood needs it back.
