Here’s an old Ad from 1952 that caught my eye.

I always liked this building, and I thought it had interesting brickwork over the doors. Check out that Neon sign…

Sadly there was a huge fire at a body shop last year, and the building burned as part of the collateral damage. Looks like the frame for the sign is still mounted to the roof…

I didn’t manage to ever get around to shooting it pre-fire…

However you can see the brickwork around the doors here…

I went by to get a new photo of it since the fire, and imagine my surprise to find a vacant lot. This place is only 2 blocks from my house, and I didn’t even notice it go… They must have been pretty quick to take it down. 🙁
