Is Kodak the company that makes a knockoff of Pace® Picante Sauce in Rochester, New York?

It hails from Rochester, yes. Not sure about the pizza sauce but the colours match?

I heard few years ago that some of the Kodak buildings were being used to process food. Also that "skins" for smart phones were made there. Kodak should be the No. 1 maker of digital image sensors. I think the food product was some kind of tomato sauce. This was probably a YouTube video that originated from the Discovery Channel group.

This is the video I remember. It's from the NY Times...

The outmost village of Lofoten has the shortest location name possible. Å. Nothing more yet loaded with meaning (the name 'Å' usually means a slow-flowing river winding to the sea; alternatively, a small river).  No wonder the sign is a popular subject for all  the tourists flooding Lofoten these days. Even photographers cannot avoid the temptation I'm afraid. Bu we rarely steal the signs ...

Rethymnion, Crete in the old times. (1982) Sign for Zorbas bar on the city beach.

Alas all is gone now,  in the hunt for progress and wealthy tourists.
