SNAP: Odd*

On Mission near 24th

I don’t know who painted “oddFELLOW BARS” or why.  Mission Local would love to hear from anyone with information about the project.

* The Odd Fellows is a fraternal organization dating back to the dawn of the industrial age in Britain. Apparently the concept of mutual solidarity was as “odd” then as it is becoming now. The Odd Fellows came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush and played a prominent role in the development of the City. For more on the Odd Fellows, see http://www.ioof.org/IOOF/?hkey=f5642189-3fa6-4022-bd04-40b225478400 and  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Yerba-Buena-Lodge-No-15-Odd-Fellows/254450707933239 and for the history of the Odd Fellows in San Francisco see
