If you’ve driven, biked, walked or crawled along South Broad Street near the Ellsworth subway stop in Philadelphia over the past several decades, you’ve probably seen this sign:
The bar was vacant for years, but it’s recently been refurbished and is seeing new life as a bar and music venue under the same name. There were promises of restoring the sign, but the weathered original remained. It was still impressive, but it had seen some better days.
I don’t know when this happened. I pass it every weekday as I head to work, but either I wasn’t paying strict attention or this refurbished sign was installed on Saturday, June the sixth. If that’s the case, these guys work fast!
