Nick’s Flower Home, 1929

Here we see the “number man” standing outside Nick’s Flower Home in 1929. This building was located at 4040 NE Union Avenue between NE Mason Street and Shaver Street. As most of you know, Union Ave. became Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. These building are no longer standing.

  1. East side; later purchased by Erv Lind Florist (Union and Knott St.) prior to closing. Back in the days before “flowers from wherever” it was from the hot house or not!

  2. Dave Brucker, those aren’t the same buildings – the one with the mural is 4008 NE MLK, built in 1910. I think the Irvington Covenant Church sits where the florist’s shop was.
