  • "Hamburgers" (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

This little Moderne square box is sheathed in white vitrolite, with black trim. The sign “Hamburgers” is so dominant that the entrance facade really ends up as a sign, and nothing more. The building was planned by its owner. Its original name was “Dinty's Snappy Service.”
