Smulekoffs Furniture, Downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa

I love this furniture store in downtown Cedar Rapids. Look at that sign stretching up the side of the building.It's been jazzed up in the 1950's by taking an older building and adding some Modernist touches.Such as removing the first floor walls and putting in large plate glass windows and streamlined aluminum detailing.Even the doors received a jazzing up in the renovation.
