California Bound

When my father was in college during the 70s, he took a road trip to California with one of his best friends. The two of them rode their motorcycles throughout the US and even slept on park benches along the way! Its pretty crazy to see John today, and to look at the life my father lived and imagine them ever sleeping on park benches.
Anyway, my mother received these photos from John today, on the day after the anniversary of my fathers death. I'm sure it brings back memories for her  of my father from his youth, and its also nice to see these picture for the first time.

Wish my feet were here...

Can anyone tell me where to get these? Or any of the Pink Floyd British Rock line shoes? I'd really, really like the "Wish you were here" chucks!

I found this on the window of a closed restaurant in London, ON.

If you can't read the small print, it reads: "Special thanks to: Multinational corporations everywhere."

Closed due to urban sprawl
