One More Time... Why?

OK, this is the very last post about the MJB Coffee company, I promise.

For reference, here are my previous posts on MJB and their ads:

Now walking down Third street to the office I happened to look up and guess what I saw? "MJB"!

I remember from reading Coffee, Martinis and San Francisco by Ruth Bransten McDougall that after the 1906 earthquake the MJB company rebuilt their San Francisco warehouse and headquarters south of Market - and as it turns out, on Third and Townsend. The building still stands, and the MJB logo seems to have been faithfully re-painted over the last century.

I doubt that there is anything else about the building that is left from MJB's tenure here, but it was a nice surprise to see the logo on one more building in San Francisco.
