“historically important c. 1926 american made interior "telephone” illuminated sign salvaged from the granada theater shortly before demolition. the customized spanish revival style solid bronze sign was fabricated and customized by victor s. pearlman & company, chicago, il. the heavy bronze metal sign retains the original amber colored textured (i.e., hammered) glass inset with lightly etched lettering and surrounding fanciful border. remarkably, the original finish remains intact. the non-extant granada theatre was constructed in 1926 for the marks brothers (louis and meyer), who at the time were among the major theater operators in chicago. the architect was edward e. eichenbaum (the granada was his first theater design), who was the principal designer for the architectural firm of levy & klein. eichenbaum also designed the marbro, regal, and century theatres."
