Or in this case, perhaps not.

Meridian Street below Fall Creek in the early 1900s had the longest list of Who’s Who addresses in the city. Holliday. Coffin. Claypool. Chatard. Lilly. Rink. The list goes on and on. And speaking of on: time marched on, dismantling and destroying the majestic mansions of Meridian. Commercial buildings and apartment buildings took over most of that real estate. And then there’s one like this one at 2250 N. Meridian. The 1913 Blue Book says Mrs. David Kahn (and family) lived there. It is difficult to imagine how it may have looked back then. I just marvel. How the H*ll did this mess happen? What is that thing?
