NE Union Avenue, 1929

The building just to the right of the two featured yesterday also did not fare well during its street-widening makeover. Today’s look is a far cry from this handsome 1929 facade. At least that little space (a stairway) between buildings is still there.

  1. All three of these buildings have totally different brick facades, different fenestration etc. But the upper stories do look like 1920s to 1930s construction, with terracotta accents etc. I wonder if the street right-of-way wasn’t actually widened, and new facades constructed further back.
