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.
Thanks, that’s a great picture, I wish there was one of the gas station on the right.
Today’s view isn’t so charming: http://goo.gl/FaFMgG
I love the added detail of the milk cans awaiting processing outside the creamery.
some real craftsmanship in that building!
I wonder which building those pieces of glazed terra cotta came from? Or are they cast iron?
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.
Oh. I see that it’s already been said that the street was widened.
