Do you remember the northeast corner of Main and Thirty-first?

The building at the corner of 31st and Main is one of Midtown's most distinctive, known as the Jeserich or the Tower Building. Around 1900 the corner housed a drug store, and in the 1940 photo above, it was the factory and salesroom of the Kaufman Window Shade Company.
