Dear PoPville,

I was at 18th and Columbia Roads and I noticed a still extant painted sign on building next to Sun bank at Columbia Road west of 18th that says “Merrini’s Califlorida” as I recall seeing it about 30 years ago there, do you know anything about it?

sssdc1 writes on flickr that it is:

“Menchini’s Califlorida Fruit Shop Ghost Sign, Columbia Rd NW DC”

I couldn’t find any more info online. Anyone else familiar with Menchini’s Califlorida Fruit Shop?
