Circa : 1935

In 1847 Frank S. Reisch purchased one square acre of property in Springfield, Il as the site of the new Reisch Brewery.  Prior to the advent of plastic sign faces plate glass was the choice material for backlit sign faces.  This rare octagonal laminated plate glass sign face is hand painted in reverse on the back sign of the glass and back sprayed with white.
