In October 1924, The Baum & Brody Furniture company moved from their store on what is today Riverside Dr. E., just west of Goyeau to the corner of Chatham & Ferry.
Today this building that has had a long history as a downtown watering hole, remains nearly identical.
The building began life as the home of the Universal Car Agency in 1912. The Universal Car Agency sold “The Ford Automobile, The Russell & The Cadillac”. The building served as both a showroom, and a service garage.
The company took out a full page ad to celebrate their move to the new location in October, 1924.
Now coming up on its 97th birthday, it is staggering to think, just how many people have walked through those doors over the years, whether looking for a car, a washing machine, a seafood dinner or a beer.
