7-foot-tall 'B' crash-lands on Downtown sidewalk
Topic: Signs
"A 300-pound, 7-foot tall aluminum letter "B" -- part of the new Ariba sign going atop One FreeMarkets Center Downtown -- fell 500 feet to the ground yesterday morning when a cable broke as workers tried to move it from a window washing platform onto the building for installation." Read the story in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 12.Feb.2005. (via typographer.org)

UPDATE: "...it was a Eurostile Extended upper case B, that fell from the Ariba wordmark." (via veer.com)
