Central Dairy Building

William Bell operated the Central Diary throughout the 30's and 40's and enjoyed a work/live setup long before it became vogue in recent years.  He ran the business from the storefront and lived above on the 2nd floor.

Today this building still is intact despite renovations through the years. As a stand alone structure you can walk almost completely around it.  Some of its best features are down the sides and at the back. You can almost imagine the delivery trucks using the loading dock to fulfill their customers orders. 

Pho A Dong Vietnamese Restaurant is the present tenant. Walk down the side and the rear of the building and look for the lightbulbs... quirky fun.
