@Clipdat, Impressive! I like the way that looks!
I apologize for going off on a tangent in this thread, but....@mhardy6647 said:The 19 inch rack mount cabinet standard dates back to the telephone industry and (at least) the 1930s... and probably earlier.
Doc, thanks for awaking one of my "Ma Bell" and telephone industry memories.
In 1976 on my first visit to NYC, I was given a tour of the lobby of the historic New York Telephone Company headquarters building in lower Manhattan. OMG, I remember that ceiling.
Built in 1927 by architect Ralph Walker, the New York Telephone Building is considered to be the world’s first Art Deco skyscraper. Its “wedding cake” shape, influenced by setbacks required in the first New York City zoning code in 1916, inspired numerous artists, including Modernist John Marin who rendered the building multiple times with a Cubist treatment.
In addition to its revered place in the Modern art movement, the New York Telephone Building was one of those buildings that New Yorkers only got to peek in when lucky – most of the time, its stunning Art Deco lobby was off limits, or at the very least, one you would only dare to step in briefly because of heavy security.
One of several landmark buildings that have either been closed off for years or inaccessible behind a veil of commercial and industrial uses, it has been converted to condos.
