1930's Talkies Porcelain Neon Chicago Theater Sign
Mid-1930's Claude Federal TALKIES Porcelain Neon Sign from a Chicago Movie Theater! In a city with many theaters, having the "latest" technology, that being movies with sound, was a major "draw" to the theater. So, advertising this latest technology would draw the customers to that theater. While the actual theater where this hung is lost in history, it did originate from a collection from Chicago. The "can" has been added to the original porcelain skin as has been the new neon. The red arrow has a rheostat that allows it to either be "on" or to flash as whatever speed suits your tastes! Delivery to your location is negotiable as the sign is fragile.
