The original glass was not particular safe. It had cracks in numerous places. In addition, portions of the glass had been replaced or plywooded over, and then other panes had been painted. There was also etched permanent damage from various logos over the years that were installed, and it was also dangerous in that if it ever broke it was not safety glass (and It weighed a LOT!)
Jackson Glass was hired to replace 13 panes of glass on the storefront. Some of the panes were 10’x6′ and weighed over 550 pounds each. Modern double-pane glass was used.
