As I posted in "Old Pics" thread a few yrs ago...one of my fav parts of 7-Corners! Some more cool facts about my fave....
The first car drove under that magical sign Oct. 4, 1956, the day of the shopping center's grand opening. The sign consisted of an 80-foot-tall vertical section that read "7 CORNERS" and a horizontal arch reading "SHOPPING CENTER." The 11-foot-tall "7" forecast the weather. A jingle from those days:
When Number 7 is shining red, nasty weather is ahead.
When Number 7 is shining green, fair weather is foreseen.
When Number 7 is shining white, cloudy weather is in sight.
A vertical row of lights flashed upward when the temperature was increasing and downward when the mercury was falling. As if this weren't enough, there was also a three-foot-high digital clock.
