Barton’s Bonbonniere, New York City. Architect, Victor Gruen. Graphics consultant Alvin Lustig.

Due for a revisit–a veritable golden ticket of a place, more than just bricks and mortar. I first shared this image, discovered in a 1952 Architectural Forum, early last year and it’s been a superstar ever since.

The technicolor glory of this Barton’s has been consigned to history and memory. There are just a slender few of the brilliant light fixtures still in existence–one is currently on display at the Brooklyn Museum.
