This great big sign is on the side of the Victoria Theater, near 16th. and Mission in San Francisco. Yes, the Albers brand has been in existence since 1895, but Albers was bought by Carnation in 1929, and Nestle bought Carnation in 1984. There is a good article about the Albers brand over at:
The Victoria Theater also has quite a colorful history. The theatre, built in 1908 as a vaudeville house, is now a city landmark and the oldest operating theatre in San Francisco. I seem to remember it as a raunchy striptease theater in the early '70's, but currently they are featuring "Spike and Mike" animated films -- proudly advertised as "sick and trashy". Tickets, anyone?
