This one-part commercial block features buff brick wall facing and a four-part aluminum-framed display window resting on a brick bulkhead with no entrance door. A continuous aluminum visor awning, anchored to the upper façade wall, spans the full width of this building and its neighbor to the south (03-29-11_105). Terra cotta coping tiles cap the parapet wall.

There was a one-story building on this parcel by 1884. The building housed a dwelling on the north and lunch counter on the south. Between 1905 and 1911, the two store spaces were combined to house a lunch counter. The facade dates to the ca. 1910s or 1920s. The storefront and awning date to ca. 1950.

This building retains its ca. 1950 appearance and, therefore, is classified as a contributor."
