Physical Status



The 1915 and 1950 Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps show a series of attached brick buildings on this block of South Avenue. This block is full of stores and businesses, a stark contrast to the vacant lot today. 106 South is shown as a brick store on both maps. In 1915 it is two stories with a noncombustible roof; in 1950 it is three stories with a composition roof. The 1915 building only extends halfway to the rear lot line; by 1950 it encompasses the entire lot.
