A Good Sign: Bloomingdale's


It's obvious, I know. But, for some reason (probably because it's obvious), I've never set it aside for distinction. So here it is. Hard to deny the Art Deco triumph of these awnings.

An all-time favorite. Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for the reminder. Like the bronze elevator doors at Macy's (formerly Abraham & Straus) on Fulton St in Brooklyn, we sometimes forget to appreciate the vestiges of classic Art Deco around us. By the way, had a fascinating time Saturday at the Brooklyn Historical Society library. The information in the post below pertains to researching any house in any Brooklyn neighborhood...and contains a link to an amazing online resource everyone should know about (it's addictive!)

It's just that little extra effort that makes a sign alluring isn't it? What signage was left for us & what we're (currently) leaving behind is worlds apart it seems...Lin
