description:

The Book Nook building seen here was razed in 1914 or 1915 to make way for the white-brick, gabled building that still stands there today (2018) and houses Buffa Louie's At The Gables. The house at right was eventually razed and The Varsity Pharmacy building was constructed in its place. Later the building would house The White Rabbit and today (2018) the old Varsity Pharmacy building houses a Starbucks coffee shop. The delivery truck belongs to Lettelleir & Son bakery. According to the 1910-1911 Bloomington City Directory they were located at 204 East Third Street.
