The question is whether or not we should be grateful that the Depression (apparently) forestalled the additional floors...

Over the years the building seems to have housed a Safeway, a branch of "Awful Fresh MacFarlane" candies, and Harry Lowitz, a TV dealer (selling Packard-Bells).

It also made a list of earthquake-vulnerable buildings in 1979... I guess it was retrofitted, and I'm glad it--and you--survived, ER.
