Move-out Week in the Old North (158)

As everyone knows, Davis is a (1) vast student rental town in which (2) leases commonly expire at the end of August.
      The conjunction of these two facts creates a rather large-scale “move out” and “move on” exodus during the final days of August. Over these days, rented moving vehicles dot the streets and unwanted items pile up at the curbs. Also, random acts of parting hostile vandalism are seen.
     The Old North gets its share of all this transitional behavior. Here are a few scenes.

For the convenience of vandals, N district sign posts
simply unscrew from a pipe in the ground. Good design
for a college town.
