A new modern building and location for the Herpolshimer Dept. Store which has moved east from its former location at Monroe and Ottawa. Several street lights are visible that are doubled globed, but a different style is on the corner in front of the Herpolshimer sign. A Buick is at the far left, and several different makes of cars are on the street as well as a Pepsi-Cola truck, and a bus in the distance. The street has no trolley car tracks in the brick pavement.
