Additional Information:This appears to be a newer facade on an earlier building. It is plainly detailed with the only attempt at decoration being soldier courses of brick at the cornice and lintels. Although the architectural integrity of the early 20th century facade and storefront is intact, this utilitarian building is of little architectural interest. It does contribute to the significance of the District, however, but only as an appropriately scaled element of an intact blockface.
