Squint Shot 071311

Before we got to the bottom of the staircase, my gaze went upward to this glass with "Real Estate, Alex J. Tait, L. Harold Crandall" painted on the glass, backwards to our view. If my information is correct, Alex Tait was the son of George Tait, who was the president of the Community State Bank. The first floor of this building served as the bank's location for many years. I am curious how this sign was visible to those on the street, if only for the fact the facade of the building was not flush with the other storefronts. Looking back at old photographs, it would appear the first floor had different windows and an indented doorway, which may have made this visible. Does anyone remember?
