First peek inside the Schreiner Department Store building

They opened up the old stairway to the basement of the old Schreiner Building today, and I was excited to see it.  The workmen said no work had been done on the steps themselves -- they're the same steps that were in place when the stairway was open, back in the 1920s.  Feel free to share these images with your friends.

  1. I love these photos of the Schreiner Store Building.

    Has the new owner published its intentions for the entire building?
