The portion of the building on the left of the photo was a candy store, and disappeared sometime between 1933 and 1947. Not sure what happened, but it was a vacant lot for some time. The building currently has a tile block storefront with a very strange marquee which may date from the renaming to Dallas, or might have been put up for whatever store took over the place. The building now uses a 1300 address.
