....anyone have any clues about this unique building...does anyone recognize the gentlemen in the medallions?

It looks like the building may have once been freestanding and a little more prominent; given that and its distinctive decoration, it seems odd that so little comes up easily for it. And the two tenants I've found to have occupied the building offer no clue as to its distinctive features: In the 1910s and into the '20s, Campbell and Ward Hardware and Plumbing seems to have occupied the space; from the mid-'20s, it was a local outlet for the national manufacturer Reedcraft...
