Cow On Roof

A life-size fiberglass cow stands on top of the take-out restaurant Taqueria la Vaquita (The Cow Taqueeria). The fiberglass lady bull was put on top of the building in 1963 when it was "Cow Store," one of a local chain of convenience stores. Cow Store was actually a collective name given to these stores because of the cows up top.
