captain54...I am sorry for the confusion, but I was referring to the video I found on FuzzyMemories.TV...the site on old Chicagoland commercials. It was on a April 21st, 1981 Loop FM98 Commercial, there is a brief, and I mean brief shot of some guys in front of Banquet On A Bun with what looks to be the Carnegie in the far background, but what would be ISBELLS, the letters on the sign that I see are definitely "CES"...at least that is the only letters that are visible.
Let me know if you want me to post the video or send it to you directly. The problem with the video when I tried posting it was that it was going straight to play and soon as the thread was opened.....I can send it you way, or maybe you know of a way it can be posted....or better yet, just a frame shot at 9-11 seconds.
