Additional Information:A severely plain facade appears to have been applied to an earlier building of red brick and accented only with soldier coursing at cornice and lintels. Diamonds done in darker brick are also found in the u pper facade. Extensive modifications to the storefront-done in a "Colonial" style-have severely compromised the original architectural character of this building. It does contribute to the architectural significance of the District, however, as an appropriately scaled element of an intact blockface.

This building appears to have been constructed near the turn of the century and remodeled prior to 1919.

Previously surveyed in 1982, updated photo in 2005.
