21 Berkeley Square


The Ville de Paris department store was the first tenant of the Homer Laughlin Building and was replaced by the Grand Central Market in 1917. The Fusenot family owned the store until 1915; the new owners moved the store to Olive and 7th, making way for the market. I'm not sure when the fa├žade lost its detail, such as LAUGHLIN over the door.
