    Significance Statement
    Excellent example of a three-dimensional rooftop sign in the figure of a man. High quality of design. Associated with long-time San Fernando Valley business, Carpeteria, though building tenant has changed. Although the sign is intact, the building has been altered and therefore does not appear to convey its historic significance. This sign appears to meet local criteria only and may not meet significance thresholds for National Register or California Register eligibility.
