This photo was taken not long after this building opened, nearly 100 years ago. We're not going to say what it originally was, but it's pretty obvious from the style of the signage. The street level always had some retail space, which today is occupied by a chain store. The rest of the building was gutted sometime in the latter half of the 20th century, and now all of the commercial spaces host some type of chain company. Do you know where this building and what it used to be?
