    Hello, My name is Shawn Brawford. I used to work in this building from 2011 until October of 2020. At that time is was Accent Signage Systems, but we have been purchased and moved to Burnsville. This building has always interested me and I'm wondering how I may get pictures of it from the Burma Shave days in a larger size if possible either digital or print.
