The 121/123/125 storefronts are occupied by one business and have been altered with ca. 1970 brick bulkheads and metal and glass display windows and doors. Adjacent to the 121 storefront is an original recessed entrance with a single-light glass and wood door. The transom above these storefronts has been covered with wood panels. The 127 storefront contains a separate business and was remodeled ca. 1985 with metal and glass display windows and door. The storefront retains wood bulkheads which may be original. The transom above the storefront has been covered with wood panels. Adjacent to the 127 storefront is an entrance to the second floor. This entrance has a single light glass and wood door and added wood panel over the glass light. The upper facade of the building has not been altered and retains its original design. The upper facade is divided into four bays with each bay containing paired one-over-one sash windows. These windows share rock faced stone lintels and sills.
