Athenian Candle Co.

It's Friday, kids, and you know what that means! Our weekly celebration of Atomic Number Ten!

This is another classic Chicago neon sign. The Athenian Candle Company is in Greektown, near the UIC campus. I remember walking past this shop many times back when I was a student there (over a decade ago now!). It hadn't changed much when I shot this back in 2009-same religious candles in the window, same old sign on the door, and this beauty on the corner. I don't know if it is lit up anymore-it looks to be in great shape though. I swear I have a shot from way back when of it lit up at night but I can't find it anymore.
