Truly for the preservationists or modernist who has everything – except for this!
Arlington, VA boosted a dozen Lustron mid-century pre-fab houses but has lost several to demolitions and tear-downs. Preservation Arlington preserved individual home panels from this loss and donated this priceless item! It makes a terrific magnetic bulletin board, office art work, and a reminder of the recent past. Measures 2 feet by 2 feet.
