historic lost commercial transom restored

The Uptown neighborhood of Chicago was the center of culture and nightlife in the 1920s and 1930s. The Uptown Broadway Building was a commercial building located in the heart of Uptown. Uptown is now undergoing extensive redevelopment and this prominent building is part of it.

During the reconstruction and remodeling of this building an original street sign was discovered that had previously been removed and lost. Large sections of the panel were missing and the panel was completely collapsed. However, plans were made to display it in the updated building if it could be restored.

Since so much of the original panel was missing we also had to imagine what the design of the original panel would have been in order to replace it. This transom is another example of how what appears to be just junk can still be restored to its original beauty, structural integrity and function.
