Red Jug

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 10 December 2010 in Documentary & Street.

Starting life in 1928 as a tire shop, the jug shaped building is now a strip club in Portland, Oregon.

Part of the Roadside Oddities Series

My Spotlighted Images

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

Always so fairy and so unusual. Love it. Great association of colors, great time for this catch Steve.

a jug can also refer to a woman's breast so hmmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe it's sort of aptly named???!! either way i love the movement and colour of the car opposed to the stilnessl of the building behind

Great shot! I'd say it is more appropriately named for a strip club than a tire shop.

Were you aware that Portland, Oregon sports more topless bars per capita than anywhere else in the US? Now there's an idea for a series . . .
