Do you recognize this building. This is where the “going down” was so pleasant.

Did you have a nice trip to the “Home” ?

I don’t know Mrs. Miller’s name only the last part, so can’t send her a card. Hope I shall hear from you.

(Our) Post Script: Might May have been referring to an elevator ride?

 

Penny for your thoughts: What business do you know that operated out of this building? It still stands on the northeast corner of Pennsylvania and Washington Streets.

    That building is called 1 N Penn, and is still located on the northeast corner of Pennsylvania and Washington Streets. I believe it was built in 1908, and is one of the early “skyscrapers” in Indianapolis.
