Anyone remember the big lit up sign on the former East Peoria Cilco plant? I'm looking for an old picture but can't find any. What was that guys name, anyway? I keep thinking Randy Kilowatt, but I'm sure that's not right.

The Reddy Kilowatt sign...or at least his head...is alive and well at Illinois Antique Center on the Riverfront. The big letters that also used to spell Central Illinois Light Company were bought with Reddy and rearranged and now read Illinois Antique Center on the top of our building Waterfront Place.
