Is a new live music venue, nightclub or restaurant coming to 640 C Street in downtown San Diego? It sure looks that way!
In the past few days musicians have been painted on the windows of the 1928 Hamilton Fine Foods Building at the corner of Seventh Avenue and C Street. I noticed today that the stylish artwork is nearly finished. There are images of musicians that seem be be performing jazz, blues and even some country.
(All I know about the Hamilton Building is that when I first moved downtown it was the home of the San Diego Computer Museum, which displayed some of the earliest computers and had a Computer Hall of Fame. I visited that museum once and it was awesome–but that was years before I started Cool San Diego Sights. The San Diego Computer Museum closed their doors in 2006.)
These painted musicians are a mystery to me!
It occurred to me after I published this blog that I didn’t take photos of the historic building, with its striking “columns” and classical friezes.
I walked by at a later time with my old camera, and got a few quick shots.
