This is the building that the picture above, was taken from. The building was located on the southeast corner of Second St. and Park Ave.

Here's another look at the backside of the building, looking north on Park Ave. from the corner of Third and Park Ave. The building was torn down I believe in 1953, somewhere about that time.
