Morse code in the wild, sorta

Morse code stencil graffiti
Found at the corner of Taylor and Valparaiso

Transcribed:

.---/..-/-./../.--././.-.//.-/-./-..//..-./---/.-../.../---/--

Which translates to:

J U N I P E R A N D F O L S O M

Technically, letters should be separated by spaces and words by “/” (slashes), but who’s counting?

Juniper and Folsom is an otherwise nondescript T-intersection in San Francisco, consisting of a storage place, an autobody shop, and a custom bag shop. I wonder if there’s some more Morse code stencil graffiti there? Or hidden treasure?

Update, Update, Read All About It!
Josh Myer (of UNC and ibiblio fame) writes in to tell me that he visited Juniper and Folsom today (Nov 25) and found this (what I can only describe as a wheatpaste of a “knight with a thumbs-up head”):
