If you appreciate the Machine Age era, you'll love this recasting in bonded aluminium of an incredible architectural artifact. The original plaque was found above the entrance doors of the Con Edison Substation #1, in Brooklyn, N.Y. Strong WPA styling, depicting the machinations of American industry; including a group of workers armed with tools, automobiles, gears, airplanes, zepelins, propellors, and the Con Ed Substation itself. The background appears to be the skyline of NYC, with one of it's great bridges (Brooklyn Bridge?) This plaque is wired and ready for installation.
