History through architecture

As we renovate the 4th Street Properties, we discovered some old photos of the greenhouse and the retail shop that was Laramie Floral (originally built in 1926 and  1947. Check out these photos.  We are so thankful that Rudolph Peterson, owner of Laramie Floral and owner of these properties which it appears he inherited from his father.  He took such great care of this property and had the funds to build an amazing, solid greenhouse structure.  The 3 foot concrete base walls and solid steel frame will allow us to recreate something cool to share with Laramie… a downtown urban garden!

As we move forward with our projects here, we would love any photos, history or stories about this property and the Peterson family.

Laramie Floral possibly in the 1970s.  Since then it has been a leather tannery, a suntan shop and several beauty/barber shops.

The greenhouse in the 1970s?  The shed was removed years ago.

Based on the size on the tree out front, this may be taken in the 1950s or 1960s.
