Holden #2

This is the other side of the the building. A walk by last night reminds me that the building seems currently to be unoccupied.

ETA: A bit of poking around on the Minnesota Historical Society website suggests that in an even earlier incarnation, this building housed the Sturr-Bullard Motor Company, consistent with this area's past of Minneapolis's Automotive District.

Update:  Construction is well underway for the "summer" opening of a Lunds wine and spirits shop.  The good folks at Lund's tell us that the building is known as the Sturr-Bullard Motor Company Building and was built in 1914. Even better, it appears they are going to preserve the signs (at least so far).  Good for Lund's!
