In my ongoing quest to document interesting examples of tile in Cincinnati and elsewhere, I sometimes overlook the obvious. Since the old Bank Cafe sign got Frankensteined, I haven’t looked at this corner closely. But, oh, look at this awesome tile floor inside the storefront!
Here’s a decorative element similar to the swastika last seen in the Germania Building a couple of blocks away. Relax, it’s obviously not a Nazi symbol…
Below left, the current “Q Info Center” can answer all your pressing condo questions. Below right, the same sign in its previous incarnation, when the space was the Bank Cafe. I appreciate the creative reuse of the sign armature, but why not just give the whole thing to the Sign Museum?
