The black blob in the photo is a pigeon that I did not see when I took the shot. This building houses Bruegger’s bagels and Candy Land in downtown St. Paul. Next time you stop by Candy Land look up, but also watch out for pigeons.
Some bricks and some blocks too.
Someone asked me earlier this week if I ever get tired of taking pictures in downtown St. Paul and my answer was no. This building is on the corner of 6th and Wabasha and I am guessing I could easily take 50 photographs of it and still find something new to like. This nine story building was built in 1888 in the romanesque revival style. It now houses retail and banking.
Wonderful to see, evidence of Spring. I need constant reassurance.
They just don’t build them like this anymore.
Kind of hidden and wedged in between newer buildings this is the oldest surviving commercial building in St. Paul and the first fire station. I have seen pictures of it from the 1880’s and back then it was black and white and the fire department used horses. Is someone seeking a demolition permit to tear this down?
