Inscription. One of the oldest and least disturbed buildings in the 25th Street Historic District is this two-story brick vernacular store built in 1888. The simply corbeled cornice and segmentally arched window bays with stone keys are the only attempts at decoration.

A multitude of ethnic enterprises have occupied the building over the years. Among its occupants were, the Union Restaurant, the Ying Yee Company, Barsotti Confectioners, the Frazzini & Bros. Saloon, Mary Martinís Ritz Rooms, and the Sunrise Cafe.
Businesses operated continuously in this building from 1888 to 1979. It was restored in 1984.
