Athenian Candle Co.
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.
