In 1910, the F. Mayer Boot & Shoe Co. commissioned architects Schnetzky & Son to design this white-glazed, terracotta tile building. The U.S. government purchased it in 1945 and for many years the Veterans Administration occupied space here. Today the Institute of Beauty and Wellness is on the first floor, and the upper floors contain Florence Eiseman, Next Act Theatre and more. - Historic Third Ward Walking Tour brochure
