This linoleum cut was printed in the club newsletter of January 1929. Otto Hake was the artist. (There is a portrait of Hake by Oskar Gross hanging in the club’s lunchroom today.)

From the January 1928 newsletter, we learn that the post and sign were designed and made by Walter Schmuck, who contributed them to the club.

It has long been replaced by a clunkier design in concrete–the banisters are too long, for one thing–but the limestone caps to the newel posts depicted here may be found at either side of the foot of the stairs even to this day.)

Walter Schmuck also did this wood cut, reproduced in the January 1927 club newsletter:
