Neat before and after Steve. It's easy to narrow down the time frame the old photo was taken as in the window I see an NRA sign. The National Recovery Act was passed in 1933 and was ruled unconstitutional in 1935, so a pretty specific time that would have hung in the window. Being a collector of art deco items from the 20's and 30's, I always liked the deco eagle NRA logo and have this framed cardboard sign in my collection.

Talk about eagle eyes! Hard to see that it's pretty blurry. Nice poster.
