The vintage neon display at The Philadelphia Center for Architecture, 1218 Arch Street came down in 2015 when the Center was remodeled.

We are looking for a home for the 13 pieces that were there plus up to 140 more, including such Philadelphia icons as Pat's Steaks, Bookbinders, Levis Hot Dogs, Horn and Hardart, and Pep Boys.
