Back here I had posted this image, which a helpful reader reminded me was LaGana's Fish House at 1464 Broadway. Well, this past weekend I finally got around to shooting a 'now' version of it, since it wasn't raining like it was every other weekend since the beginning of April!
Traffic was pretty light on Broadway on Sunday, and I had no trouble standing in the middle of the road to get my shot.
Today the building is home to Auto Color & Equipment. It looks like it has been well-taken care of, but the trees are sadly missed, along with the little nautical touches.
As a reminder of the building's earlier incarnation, here's a 1951 newspaper ad for the LaGana Fish Company. Back then, however, they were located on Broadway a little bit north of the building shown above.
It's both strange and sad thinking of the rich assortment of businesses, such as LaGana's, that used to line Broadway.
