Regarding Friend & Marks Co., Clothiers. In 1906, Friend & Marks Co., a manufacturer of clothing for men and boys, hired architects Buemming and Dick to design this building. In 1934 Moritz and Winter Co., also a men's clothier, moved in and 30 years later went out of business. Finally, in 1974, after nearly ten years of being vacant, the Harri Hoffman Co. purchased the building and used it for storage. After changing ownership again in the early 21st Century, first floor retail now houses local candy company, Quality Candy. - Historic Third Ward Walking Tour brochure
