Decorel Today

The original building featured glass windows offset by rose brick. . .today the brick is painted a soft grey. . .the retaining wall is in need of repair. . .the sculptural roof line is still stunning and is reflected in the canal. . .pointing out the need for preserving architectural work that is a work of art.

For more about this award-winning building, see "Landmarks in Illinois," March 2010 archive.
