I have a brother-in-law who is an economist and routinely says, "torture the data until it confesses".  Translated... beat it up until you get what you want.

I put the photo in that I showed above in photo shop and worked with dither and sharpen and could read most of what is there.  The rear blue sign is H. Kalb and the bottom says Lager.  Kalb was a brewer that easily comes up on Google.  the next logical this after Lager is beer.   The only real fabrication was the top of the segmented sign.  Again Lager can be pulled out .  No amount of 'cooking" would bring up the upper part.  I made an executive decision on Dortmund as that was a common sign in Chicago when I grew up and also comes up on Google.

Thanx for looking in
I didn't realize people my age were so old ! !
