When this building was built more than a 120 years ago, it was described as "extremely odd" because of the Spanish-Moorish architecture. Throughout its existence, the building was home to numerous creative groups, and catered to the German, Jewish, and Italian communities over the years. The building saw several renovations and was ultimately replaced. Today, this corner looks completely different. Do you know what this building was and where it was located?
