Wenham Building, Division Ave.
The Wenham Bldg., pictured on the right, at the NE corner of Division and Monroe, is one of the few early buildings that still stands in its recognizable form. The Coffee Ranch sign is visible mid-block, just beyond is Grinnell Bros. Music House, and at the corner stands the Majestic Theater, it's marquee appears to read "Gloria Swanson in Sadie Thompson," thus dating the photo to 1928-29. The large building across Library St. from the Majestic is the Murray Bldg. Several cars of the time period are on the street. An "X" in the center of the photo marks the location of a shop owned by the contributor's grandmother.
