Introducing: Our New Marquee!
Greetings blogisphere, and apologies for my long hiatus! I have a fun behind-the-scenes post for you today. Here you see me pictured in front of our old marquee. If any of you have been driving or walking down South Main recently and are particularly observant, you may have noticed a small architectural change and significant wattage increase above your head. Yes, we have installed a new marquee! No more dead light bulbs or Chicago - era antique displays. We have entered the 21st century, complete with LED screens! Outside anyway.
In the office we had been discussing getting the marquee for a while, but I had pushed it to the back of my head until last week when I saw three large looking men walking through our upstairs windows onto the ledge above the lobby. Most of the work for the project had to be done at night after the Trolley stops running so it was a surprise to see them during the day. Our building manager amazingly showed up for work every day after working long through the night to get the display up and running.
Hope y'all enjoy the pictures! Has anyone noticed the difference??
