Imperial Beef Company Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn

Imperial Beef Company was founded in the 1930s and moved to this Myrtle Avenue location in 1954. At the time according to Domenick, the second-generation owner and ‪#‎butcher‬, "Bedford- Stuyvesant, Brooklyn had a lot of ‪#‎Italian‬ families and we sold specialties like homemade Italian sausages. In more recent years, we changed our offerings to include chitlings." We love this ‪#‎storefront‬ ‪#‎signage‬ which was ‪#‎handpainted‬ on porcelain enamel tiles. Photo from 2004 and full interview appear in our book, "Store Front:The Disappearing Face of New York." ‪#‎disappearingfaceofnewyork‬ ‪#‎signgeeks‬ ‪#‎guardiancities‬ ‪#‎signcollective‬
