      Another fantastic sign! Plus a diner! What could be better? Great shot.

      Awesome shot! I wonder why Lim decided on a cafe and not Chinese take-out.

      Looks like a nice night, but if this is Redding in July, it was probably a scorcher that day!

      Thanks everyone!

      EthnoScape: I'm sure it was - it was probably still quite warm out even when I took this shot!

      This is the type of place I stop into when I can. It looks like the classic local, family owned joint full of folks that know each other.

      This place has been a Redding icon for generations. The food and people are wonderful...typical vintage family Chinese / American

      Lim's was our favorite Chinese restaurant during the 1960's and early 1970's.. They had the best won ton soup. My father had given Mr. Lim physical therapy and always went back into the kitchen (where I suspect he was not really welcome) to tell the staff how he wanted the food prepared.
