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 (2016) and houses Buffa Louie's At The Gables.

The delivery truck belongs to Lettelleir & Son bakery. According to the 1910-1911 Bloomington City Directory they were located at 204 East Third Street.
