It most certainly was the fence owner who did this, SKooBy Doo. It was not an act of vandalism.
Speaking of that, though, I should tell you that shortly after the peace sign went up there last summer it was defaced – by some honest-to-god “hooligans.” But the owner touched it up again right away, and it was good as new.
Take that, hooligans!
For all of you peace tourists out there, this is on the north side of SW Barton Place, ’bout half a block before Delridge. I blurred out the address in this pic, but the wood fence and peace sign are highly visible, so you can’t miss it if you’re driving around there.
