Every time I pass this, I think about what the ground floor, in particular, looked like originally. Indiana Historical Society has a few old pics of the Prather Masonic Temple, opened in 1921. (The IHS collection includes some interior shots as well).
Looks like Binkley’s Drug Store formerly occupied the ground floor, and I dunno about you, but I’m a fan of street level visual appeal, not tons of painted plywood. Would be fabulous to see those windows opened back up! Your thoughts?
