Danny O’Neil’s

Nearly everyone who passes by Alhambra and T notices Danny O’Neils. Currently, the sign only says his name, but it formerly pointed out the nature of his business, furniture restoration. I have always dug his homemade door and windows. I’ll bet they were something back in the day.

But blah, blah, blah right? We have all seen and wondered at Danny O’Neils, but my very favorite part actually takes place 1.5 blocks away on T under the freeway overpass.

It’s not the easiest thing to take a picture of the sidewalk. It reads “Danny O’Neil 1-12-52” if you can’t read it. Kind of sweet, no?

And in the Odds and Ends dept:

I rode around the alley behind Danny’s place to see if I could see more. I couldn’t, but I found this. I call it Kisses and Kale.

And if that isn’t enough Sacto, check out how trippy this town can be in Zach Hill’s latest vid.

    I have always loved that building, the sign, the door, the everything about it. Is he still alive and does he own the building? The mind can conjure many things about this fellow, Danny O’Neil.
