Machine Age Skyscraper Tenant Directory


This is a very heavy chrome plated steel framed directory sign with beveled glass double panels.

This came from the famous Boston (North End) restaurant 'Joe Tecce's' which recently closed after nearly 50 years.

This directory was already a piece of architectural salvage when they started using it as a sign to display their menu and entertainment posters.

The frame holds two rectangular framed glass panels (frames within the frame) which slide up and out when changing the announcement.

Would also make a wonderful table top if mounted with legs or placed on top of a small table.
