“Blake’s” building renovations

Interior renovations have been going on at the building that houses Blake’s and other tenants on the first floor at the corner of Mathewson and Washington Streets. Window removal also seems to indicate that either new windows will be installed or existing windows are being renovated.

  • I wonder who designed this building! They seemed to have placed the windows so the rooms are filled with natural light. Also the use of brick and cast Iron is interesting.
