The (Former) Crossroads of the World

This terrific old sign is located on a building on Bush Street between Taylor and Mason.  Its current incarnation is a tanning salon. I have no recollection of this place ever being a hub of activity, but the club owner once considered the place important enough to be advertised as the "crossroads of the world".  Who knows, perhaps it was one of those "swanky" nightclubs you see in all those old 1940/50s movies, the kind with a floor show, cigarette girls and little lamps on the tables.  Then again, it might have been a real dive.
