Mr Gold

We’ve all seen Mr. Gold who hold the “We buy gold” sign on the corner of Maguire Blvd and Colonial Drive.

Photographer and friend of Bungalower Brian Carlson sat down with Mr. Gold to learn the story of the man behind the gold mask.

In this short 4 minute documentary Mr. Gold shares how as a 21-time felon he found himself entertaining drivers with his gold hat and lets us know his plans for the future.
