hi-fi / low-fi


a few weeks ago i found this old postcard of the dow hi fi store in pasadena, probably taken in the mid 1960's. when i noticed the address on the back, i realized that it was not very far from our house, so i decided to take a look to see if anything from the storefront was still intact (obviously i knew the incredible signage was gone). when we arrived hi-fi quickly shifted down to low-fi. i couldn't believe that the super ugly on the outside and super useless on the inside electronics store, that i have had so many frustrating trips to, was once the "the west's most complete modern hi fi store". the drab windowless facade says it all...

I love the Hi Fi lettering, and to see the logos...
I recognize Garrard, Fisher and Scott from my Dad's stuff and Garrard was my first turntable... Enjoying your blog in general!
