As I was aimlessly meandering around Corona, crazed from the 80+ Corona heat, I spotted something interesting on the corner of 104th Street and 39th Avenue: specifically, 38-14 104th Street.
The front entrance seems to be festooned with intricate ironwork that was probably installed by a previous business owner on the ground floor; certainly not the mobile phone store that occupies it now.
The effect is most noticeable at the front entrance on 104th Street, where the lamp sconces have a distinct “Game of Thrones” vibe. The effect is diluted by the presence of one of those “curly” LED lightbulbs. I consulted the Municipal Archives, but its 1940 tax photo of the place offers no hints: the metalwork was installed after that date.
I’m usually the one with the answers, but Corona residents, please post in Comments what this corner ironwork is all about!
