Regarding Bradley & Metcalf Shoe Co.. In 1894, the Bradley & Metcalf Shoe Co. commissioned architect W.A. Holbrook to design their manufacturing and warehouse facility. Beginning in 1914 the Yahr & Lange Drug Co. then occupied the site for 55 years. In 1997, this building and the one at 201 N. Water Street were purchased and developed into condominiums. This project includes 79 residential units, a Riverwalk section and first floor retailer, Moda Salon. - Historic Third Ward Walking Tour brochure
