Optometry Garage Find!

Over the ash heaps, the giant eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg kept their vigil, but I perceived after a moment, that other eyes were regarding us with peculiar intensity from less than twenty feet away” -The Great Gatsby chapter 7.

“But above the gray land and the spasms of bleak dust which drift endlessly over it, you perceive, after a moment, the eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg. The eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic — their irises are one yard high. They look out of no face, but, instead, from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles which pass over a nonexistent nose. Evidently some wild wag of an oculist set them there to fatten his practice in the borough of Queens, and then sank down himself into eternal blindness, or forgot them and moved away. But his eyes, dimmed a little by many paintless days, under sun and rain, brood on over the solemn dumping ground. (Chapter 2)”

Recently picked up this old Optometry sign from a garage sale in Miami Beach!
