Seeking Information on 1930s-40s Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. Store Fronts

Seeking Information on 1930s-40s Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. Store Fronts
The Silver Spring Historical Society is seeking information on the history of 1930s & 1940's commercial building facades designed by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co.

Recently discovered information has revealed that the facades of 954-56-58 Thayer Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland were designed by and erected under the supervision of the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Corporation in 1946. Of the three original commercial storefronts, only 958 Thayer survives and is today occupied by the landmark Silver Spring business, Roadhouse Oldies. 958 Thayer was originally occupied by Kohlman's Jewel Shop August F. Kohlman was both an optician and jeweler.

If anyone has a building in their community similar to ours (photos at http://silverspringhistory.homestead.com/RoahouseOldiesFacade.html ), I would welcome submission of any images for comparison. Also welcomed is any information on the location of the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co. archives.
 
Thank you!
