Today, this photo from the ’90s shows half Preservation Denied, half Preservation Affirmed. The old theatre on the right is now known as “Talbott Street,” a well known drag-club venue. However, the cool commercial building north of it that used to be on the corner is no longer there–at one time, the Corner Grocery was there–2157 N. Talbott Avenue. It was demolished in 2003. These days, as we try to strengthen the core and neighborhoods want amenities like a neighborhood grocery, buildings like these are sorely missed.
