Every week, Oakland North will publish a photo submitted by one of our readers. This week’s photo is by Sara Ferguson.
She writes, “I’m endlessly entertained by Oakland business’ custom advertisements. This barber shop at 14th and MLK, with its hand painted sign, is a good example. This was taken around the time that Harold Camping’s ‘Rapture’ predictions for the destruction of the world were making headlines and graffiti proclamations were popping up around town.”
If you’d like to contribute to “community photo of the week,” just send a favorite photograph taken in Oakland to email@example.com with the subject: PHOTO. Oakland North cannot pay for community photos, except in gratitude and local love.
