The Security Building – 1927

Another Friday, another old photo… Today features a old press photo from the fall of 1927.

The caption on the back indicates the building cost $1 million, and was set to open December 1st.

As is often the case however, some of the details in the photo are more interesting…

I love the 1927 style scaffolding… According to the paper in the windows, the glass was supplied by Windsor based Hobbs Plate Glass.

This corner is taken somewhere around where Aardvark’s/Lefty’s is located today… Note the old Victorian porch, and the old stop sign. Interesting to note the back wall of Meretsky & Gitlin Furniture…

Even today, traces of the painted sign still exist…
