This building was constructed circa 1915, and over the course of its life has housed families as well as businesses. Alvina Patterson and her husband moved in to the building when it was a residence in 1917, and lived there until at least 1962. Mrs. Patterson stated in a Board of Equalization application to the county that they opened a store a few years after moving in because the block had become commercial.
By 1965, the assessor noted that there were 2 little shops, 2 residences, and “a heap of junk” in the building. In 1974, both stores were vacant, but someone was still living in the back of the building.
What business occupies this building today? (Hint: They started in 1977, and used to have a cat roaming the shelves). Extra points if you can also name the cat.
