Adventures with Mike: San Bruno

m.r.
a walk in the burbs

Last year my friend Mike took me on a little walking adventure in San Bruno, CA, a little city just a few BART stops away from SF. I've been living in the Bay Area for 5 years now, but had never step foot in San Bruno, nor ever thought about going there until Mike suggested it one day. Here are some photos from our sunny afternoon exploring San Bruno by foot: Mike, an explorer of sorts. A walk through a little quaint neighborhood.

More great vintage signage and typography. You might have notice from previous posts, that I'm a fan of vintage type.
