Wallet Card at Loft's Candies

The first Loft's Candies store was opened on Canal Street in 1860. By the 1920s it was the largest retail company in the United States. By the 1950s the company had over 350 locations. That was the store's heyday, however; by the 1980's they were down to just a tenth of that number and the company closed for good in 1990.

This beautiful neon sign for Lofts was recently uncovered during construction on Nassau Street in the Financial District.
