    Wright Cleaners, Grand Ave, South San Francisco, using a vintage sign from the 1970s or ’80s. Zelek is slightly stretched here. Google Street View indicates that the “Open” side of the sign is also in the same typeface. I can’t ID the “SORRY” type, which is close to Helvetica and Univers Condensed, but not (see ‘G’). The type for the slotted letterboard is Helvetica.
