The Modern Confectionery Co., Part 2

Modern Confectionery Building, 1907

This is the north side of the Modern Confectionery Building. It's a wonder that the building survived because of its ragged condition; note the large crack above the upper-left window. But brick and mortar survived as well as its signs. The fire escape was removed and replaced with nice wrought iron balconies, and a red patina was applied to the bricks. The ads are actually more readable now than they were in 1996, a pleasant turn of events.

Below is the west-facing side. Very legible, very nice!
