PEOPLE'S GAS BUILDING. Brass. Beautiful Brass.

Turn of the Century Burnham Buildings have much in common. In addition to the tripartite facade, the light well and the interior public space, each building had its Brass. People's Gas is no exception. Below is the Marquee.

...could use a bit of polish. It is impossible to photograph an historic building that has been modified over time without some regrets. I would like to have photographed the light fixtures that lined the People's grand interior space. They may have been similar to the lamps at Union Station. See Post dated March 10 for some idea of the detail we might be missing.
