Then and Now: a Saloon on the Corner

The Weston Building, on the corner of Water and Earl Garrett Streets was, for many years, a saloon.  Today it houses Francisco's Restaurant; when I was a child it was a shoe store, The Booterie.  Chaney's Confectionery  was there for a long time, and there is even some evidence that City Hall was on the second floor when it was a saloon.  (That must have been convenient for city council members.)
