    interesting to think that those are brothels upstairs–I notice the railroad crossing sign–where exactly was the railroad station?

    Do you have any information as to when the Weaver Building was built and by whom? I wonder if there’s any connection to the Weaver Laundry which operated across the street operated by my great grand parents Fred & Abbie Weaver from around 1880 to 1925.
    Thanks for your response.
