Regarding Roundy, Peckham & Dexter Co. Grocers. In 1895, Howland Russel designed this building, one of the few structures in the district without arches, for the Roundy, Peckham & Dexter Co. to accommodate their fancy wholesale grocery business. In 1962, Roundy's, Inc. moved to the suburbs and Parkwood Corp., a manufacturer and distributor of children's books, bought the structure. Renovated in 1984, it now houses Broadway Bakery & Cafe, as well as retail businesses including (shoo), the Katie Gingrass Gallery and 3rd Ward Jewelry.
