Riverside Lumber Co.
Riverside Lumber Company's new building on the corner of W. Leonard and Monroe. Corner view of a large two story commercial building. The main building is a simple cement structure, with windows and a recessed corner entrance with a glass door and transom. Near the top of the windows on the second floor is a single line of brick trim which goes all the way around the building. The roofline at the corners of the building is slightly raised. The wing to the left side of the image has two large picture windows with the lettering “Riverside Lumber Co. Display Room”. The wing to the right has a very large overhead door, with high windows near the roofline above. A large sign beyond the overhead door is lettered “Riverside Lumber Co, Jos. Northoek & Sons”. Beyond to the right is another building of wood siding, also with a large entrance. Streetcar tracks can be seen on the brick covered street, and a car is stopped by the fire hydrant. Parts of two parked cars can be seen. A utility pole with streetlight and traffic light, along with wires for the streetcar appear above the street.
