The other building I thought was interesting in the 'not a cornfield' area is just north and across the street from 1727 N. Spring Street
(to refresh your memory 1727 is shown above...and circled in red below). The 'other' bldg. is pinpointed with the red A teardrop.








There is hardly a tree in this whole industrial area except in front of this attractive one story building. When I came across the building it seemed
so different from the other buildings in the area....charming architecture and pleasant shade from the trees.

I revisited this charming building today (via google) and someone chopped down all the damn trees!!

I half expected to see Gaylord_Wilshire standing there with a smirk and a chain-saw.

Looking south on N. Spring Street from Wilhardt Street before the trees were removed.

Obviously the trees were lost when new curbing and sidewalks were recently installed (a good thing)....but I wish
they could have saved this small group of trees.

Am I the only one that liked it better with the trees? (I already know your opinion G_W )
