Description: Mosaic-covered benches inspired by Kroehler Manufacturing Company lounges.
Plaque Text: Styled after the Kroehler Furniture Company's turn-of-the-century lounges, these two feature men fishing along the Burlington Dam and ladies ice skating across the river. The images are inspired by Naper Settlement photo albums. Do you notice the fish in the DuPage River and the skater's marks on the ice and other subtle nuances?
