When the I. O. O. F. building was first constructed in 1906 there was no fire escape on the the building. The city council passed a requirement for fire escapes in late September 1911, effective November 9, 1911. TheI.O.O.F. building was not listed as among the laggards for adding fire escapes in late February, 1912. The fire escape was probably removed during a remodeling sometime after 1991.

This was not a one way street when I was growing up… and not one when I moved back. When was it a one way street and for how long? I completely missed that bit of time. Although, admittedly, I didn’t spend much time i9n the downtown area when here visiting home, bypassed it to get to the west side.

This is excellent, brings back alot of memories! I worked at Kerrits in that building and parked behind Paris Fair one morning on State street and had my car towed by the local T-shirt shop owner just to the east of Kerrits – I picked up my car at Riverside towing which was located at I think what is now the Sinclair gas station just north of the Event site (which was then what we called the ‘2nd Street launch’. I think First Interstate bank was across the street, and US bank was located just down the street to the east.

They tried one way streets for a short time, but it was not a success. Just like they kept changing parking meters from pennies, nickels, dimes .. the city couldn’t make up its mindðŸ˜‚

Outdoor steel fire escapes with the drop down are now a rarity,
