Change happens and it’s rarely driven by aesthetic concerns. This “Progressive” functional design from the early 20th century is still situated at the southwest corner of Fourth and Main streets, but the lower auxiliary spaces (which wrap around the building on the left or south in this postcard view) has been partially obscured by a new vestibule and probable handicap entrance. The second floor clerestory windows also appear to have been filled in.How those secondary single-story spaces in the original design are/were used is unknown.
