What was here before?

In the 1940s, this site was occupied by several two- and three-story buildings with storefronts on the ground floor, including a drug store and billiards, with residential apartments above. At the south end of the block was a large industrial building, housing the P. & P. Sash & Glass Co. and a gas station, and an empty lot at the corner of Osborn Street and Linden Boulevard.
