Jackson Cleaner & Dyer – Erie St. E. at Lillian

From the Border Cities Star – January 12, 1929:

This is the new home of Jackson Cleaner and Dyer, at Erie and Lillian streets, which will be in operation at the beginning of next week. The plant, equipped, represents an expenditure of $10,000. The ground floor of the establishment is 83 by 84 feet. The central unit is two stories high, while each of the adjoining wings is one storey in height. With the new plant in operation, the firm’s output will be doubled, officials say.

Here’s a shot of the fire insurance map from 1937, showing them still in operation. By 1957, there are no cleaners listed in the phone book at that location.

Above is the same corner today. I don’t think it’s the same building. The overhead view doesn’t resemble the fire insurance map, but stranger things have happened. Anyone know anything, or remember the old building?
